In the sixties, while Rob van Hemert frequented the Art Academy, he ‘lost’ his soul and mind into art, listening to the sounds of Jazz by Charlie Parker, Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy and so many more. The almost abstract music and the fact that he, simultaneously studied at the Polytechnic Institute, has forever shaped his image of art.
During his fulltime career as an artist, Rob van Hemert has expressed his art in many ways. Each time applying different disciplines. Each expression – often under various pseudonyms – marks meaningful stages in his life. And each stage, a motivation for the next art expression.
He always is into geometric patterns. Its simplicity expresses an indescribable tension. Each art expression is a new path.
