Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

In the early seventies I proposed a stainless steel sculpture for a sports hall in Rotterdam. In imaginary planes, perpendicular and parallel to the facade of the building, I inscribed circles which made one - continuous spatial loop.

A pure linear sculpture emanation from a flat plane.
A stainless steel pipe - eight circle segments forming a continuous loop inscribed on six perpendicular planes.

In the early seventies I made linear sculptures consisting of only the contours of virtual shapes. Continuity of line and surface was for me a way of routing my thoughts. In this proposal for a sculpture in Rotterdam, I used the lines laid out by the geometry of this architecture by inscribing circles from which the sculpture was to be built.

In my first bronzes, during the sixties, I used linear elements to act as a sort of stretcher for plastic surfaces. These hyperbolic paraboloid, or doubly ruled surfaces were defined by basic lines - sometimes curved and at other times straight lines.
