The sculptor has been making sculptures, land art and
environments since the end of the sixties. A geometric
system forms the basis for his sculptures. He is
concerned about being able to construct a sculpture
based on this system.
In 1969 he received
his first commission to make an environmental work. It was
an enclosed garden for the DSW plant in Dordrecht, Holland.
Since then he has carried out various site specific works.
For him 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 his own studio, the evident functional requirements
are a new challenge for him.
