Land art and site specific sculpture in the urban setting. Environmental sculpture is an art form which uses the environment as its material. Concrete art is, like any art form, human made and is therefore geometric in essence. Public art is art which can be viewed and accessed by the public.

Red & Sculptures

During the end of the eighties I received a commission from the Province of Zuid-Holland to implement art in the road environment between Middelharnis and Dirksland. I asked If I could design this bridge which was to be built. At that time it was a standard procedure to apply a coating from which graffiti could be easily removed. That was my chance to suggest not doing that in one gray, concrete-like color but differentiating the perpendicular concrete planes from which I assembled the totality of the constructions, with their own colors. In accordance with the De Stijl movement I decided to apply white, black and two grays along with red, yellow and blue - adding my own contribution, a fourth primary color of the additive color system: green.
