CITIES - sculptures and land art


When, in the seventies of the twentieth century, Zoetermeer in The Netherlands was destined to become a growth town, public sculpture became a hot item there too. For a school in the district Buytenwegh De Leyens, Lucien den Arend made six concrete sculptures comprised of two groups - one with three concave sculptures and one with two convex ones.

Zoetermeer - Buytenwegh De Leyens - and the sculptures of Lucien den Arend - his site specific sculptures ordered by the cities of Witterda and Erfurt    

p.i.l.l.s. - two concave sculptures - 1976|1977 - concrete - Ø300x100cm

The sculptor has used color in his work. Aside from the natural colors of materials, which are usually a logical and strong side of a given material, he has used neutral colors and in some cases red, which complements the natural color of foliage.
