ARIE VOGELSANG - STILL NATURE

Mr. Vogelsang was born in Holland, but came to South Africa very early on in life. He married Heleen and had four children who now live in Pretoria, Canada and America respectively. His first exhibition was held at Gallery 101 in Johannesburg, which was followed by a few more, until he finally exhibited at the prestigious Hoffer Gallery in Pretoria, in 1987.

When he first told White SPACE of his plans to donate the proceeds of his exhibition to Greenpeace they supported his effort. We spoke of his life and how he has watched Greenpeace tackle issues most people wouldn’t have the courage to do, and how he related to the environment that surrounds him. He expressed such an intense connection to the life of the planet saying that as we move forward and develop as humans, so should our ideas of the world we share with plants, animals and the earth.

Arie has found a new dedication now, as he prepares to travel the coast line and then further North into Johannesburg and Pretoria, holding exhibitions and donating to Greenpeace Africa. This, he says, will be his new cause.

The opening of the Arie Vogelsang “Still Nature” exhibition, named because of his ideology that no matter what happens we always need to come back to nature, is his first exhibition in many years and the first of many to come. The exhibition was widely attended by local artist groups and individuals. It is a beautiful gallery, simple in design, and attractive. Arie’s work which ranged from scenic views of the Highveld, Cape Town city at sunrise and the thundering ocean was truly magnificent.
