Paul Van den bergh and Margriet Windhausen
at Whitespace
28 Jan 2009 - 15 Feb 2009

Added by Dib Whitespace is proud to present a show by Dutch artists Paul van den Bergh and Margriet Windhausen.

Paul and Margriet have been showing at Auckland’s SOCA gallery since 2003 and regularly exhibit together. Both originally from the Netherlands, Paul has trained at the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht and the National Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam where he honed his painting craft. Margriet, a sculptor, trained at the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. Both artists have established careers in their respective fields in New Zealand with works featuring in various exhibitions throughout the country from the National Gallery in Wellington, Gisborne Museum and Art Gallery, Waikato Museum as well as various public and private collections in New Zealand and the Netherlands.

As a painter, van den Bergh’s work is reminiscent of the early 20th century Paris school with a style complimentary of the likes of Picasso and Matisse. This early modern European influence is also pertinent in Windhausen’s sculptures with the spirit of Rodin and Brancusi permeating her work.

Paul van den Bergh and Margriet Windhausen show at Whitespace from Jan 27 - Feb 14 2009.
Opening preview Tuesday Jan 27 5:30-7:30pm.
