Land art and site specific sculpture - land art uses
the environment and its scale as its material. Concrete art is expressed in
material itself with which the artist introduces her non-representational objective.
Public art can be viewed and accessed by observers.
For me the Belgian rural landscape seems like it used to be in Holland before
the land reallocation (ruilverkaveling) in the middle of the last century.
That is why I think that Rembrandt van Rijn would feel much more at home
in Flanders, if he were alive today. These willows reminded me of some of
his etchings and drawings of rural scenes around Amsterdam at that time.
In 2002 I made a Land Art project as a tribute to
Rembrandt, trajectory for Rembrandt an array
of willow trees, in relation to three oak trees at Groeneveld Casle
in Baarn, The Netherlands.
