The work of Rob van der Schoor (1952) is driven by the IDEA. The use of material, the techniques used and the means of expression are fueled by the IDEA. The idea comes from the unconscious, literature, art-history and travels. Main influences are; Beckmann, Picasso, Margritte and Vermeer.
Often he works in series like; The Dutch Floors, “Religious” work, Trees, Cows, Text, Holes etc. Political events such as the murder of Theo van Gogh and September 11 had an impact on his works.
Since studying at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam he has maintained a diary in drawings in which ideas are born and developed. Up to now he has filled over 200 of these diaries, which he makes out of different materials and papers.
Traveling is an important part of his artistry. He studied at the Vancouver School of Art in Canada for a year, traveled to India, North-Africa, Turkey, East-Africa and stayed for a period of 10 years in the USA. During his stay in the USA he lived and worked in cities like Denver, Memphis, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.
After his stay in New York he opened Shores, a gallery in the center of Amsterdam and showed a number of artists he met in the USA. He also contacted galleries, collectors and museums throughout the States, which resulted in many exhibitions and curator-ships.
