opening the arctic circle Kemijärvi Finland 1990
see the maquettes - scale models of site specific sculpture
I have been been making sculptures, land art and environments since the end of the sixties. A geometric framework forms the basis for my sculptures. I am concerned about being able to construct a sculpture based on this framework. The geometric and systematic nature of my sculpture infers that every sculpture is premeditated.
In 1969 I received my first commission to make an environmental work. It was an enclosed garden for the DSW plant in Dordrecht, Holland. Since then I have carried out various site specific works. For me there is not only one approach to a project; each site is different and has its own possibilities.
Some works complement their surroundings, others create a new environment in themselves. In some instances, as is the case with my last studio in Holland, the evident functional requirements were a new challenge for me. For a random overview of my sculpture - view 21

The scale models which I have made for many of my site specific art projects are now on this site. Until June 2003 I lived and worked in Holland. I am now based in Finland
