Artworks are first available for purchase by sponsors and dignitaries before being available in person at the Exhibition in Brisbane. Unsold artworks can also be purchased online following the event.
"This artwork has been inspired by a painting my great-grandfather, Albert Weir painted in Ormiston Gorge, Northern Territory.
Albert painted a lot of Australian landscapes, working mainly in oils. Lately I’ve been contemplating the importance of family, which is why I’ve taken inspiration from his work."
Brockilli is a proud veteran who served in the Australian Defence Force and had the chance to deploy three times operationally.
After a gradual decline in Brockilli's mental health, it would then 'nosedive' before he was hospitalised. Once in the hospital, he found therapy in art, and with the help of Richmond Fellowship Queensland, he has been able to reconnect with the community.
Brockilli is very grateful for the chance to participate in the Recovered Futures Art Exhibition.
