Robyn Grove is an Australian contemporary figurative artist, working out of the Juddy Roller Studios in Melbourne. Her current body of work is a representational style of portraiture, where both the physical and intimate character of her subjects are captured with great sensitivity. She also dabbles in the tradition of ‘Vanitas’ still life; contemplating life, death and the space between.
Robyn’s studio work is usually oil paintings on wood panels, canvases or hand-made paper. These surfaces impart a unique character to her artwork as she often utilises the elements of the substrates, such as wood grain or the coloured, graphic paper pulp, as visual elements. Robyn’s street murals are typically painted with acrylic house paint, yet maintain the same realism style as her studio works.
