Inspired by fables, miths and demons, Theo Van de Goor's work tells the story of mankind's struggle within good and evil. This is his first Italian Solo exhibition, including etchings, oils and sculptures.
Theo van de Goor is a Dutch artist inspired by fables, myths, and devils. Growing up on a farm in a small village of Roman Catholic de nomination in the southern part of the Netherlands, animals, demons and mythological creatures populate his work. He made paintings of himself as an angry missionary, as a Roman soldier, as an American Indian and as a devil. He made etchings on himself as the biblical Beelzebub and Apollyon. From still life and natural scenery to mythical, biblical and classical scenes and further on to fables and self-portraits, his work forms a universe, telling a story about the eternal struggle of mankind within good and evil.
