"Eric & Robyn Werkhoven, who exhibit together under the title of Studio La Primitive, present an exhibition of drawings, paintings and assemblages. For the past thirty years Eric and Robyn Werkhoven have lived and worked as a professional contemporary artists in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Both are award winning artists and have been Finalists in major Australian art prizes. Their work has been selected for exhibitions nationally and internationally.
Art Music by Michael from The Mermaids– explores their perpetual intrigue with the rituals, mysteries and absurdities of existence.
“Revealing the world of human caprice, with a sheer delight and a touch of irony”.
The artist’s individual styles are evident in their collaborative works; Robyn’s passion for portraiture and figuration, and Eric’s stylised mythical beasts and human creatures, as is their shared attraction to bold colour and line. Their styles come together in these works complementing each other and creating an exciting collection of new works.
The exhibition includes a series of drawings and paintings by Robyn and sculptural assemblages by Eric and several works by Monique Werkhoven.
The exhibition will be officially opened by Joe Eisenberg OAM
