For me the word recent is a relative expression; working mainly when commissioned to do so, I do not have a very large oeuvre. And, looking back over the years, I have chosen those works which represent my work in the nutshell you have asked for. The résumé|cv, I sent you, is the one you can view here www.denarend.com/cv/résumé. There have been many reviews and articles in newspapers, magazines and books which you can find in my www.denarend.com/publications.
During the years I have done site specific work in over 55 cities and would be very honored to do work for you.


Yours very sincerely,


Lucien den Arend
