Rob van Hemert (born 1949) paints since he was 14 years old. Back then in the basement of the house of his parents. It was ‘the’ place where he could withdraw himself from a very complex family life. He studied at the Free Academy and the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and then architecture at the Polytechnic Institute in The Hague. The consequences of his youth show clearly throughout his work. He painted at first with big strokes, then gradually, he began to feel a strong affinity to the obsessive minimalism of a Mondrian and a Jan Schoonhoven. That gave structure to his mind. Although he also paints figurative, he realises constantly that figures and faces capture melancholic memories. The abstract geometric shapes bring the same but less painful eloquence to express his thoughts and experiences.
