Stainless Steel Sculpture
Since the early seventies I have been using stainless steel as a material for most of my sculpture. Bronze was the first material in which my sculptures were cast. Already early in my career however I realized that I wanted to work on an urban scale. And with the budgets reserved for public art it was just not possible to complement. or even compete with, architecture using bronze as a material.
I have always been interested in surfaces and the delimitation of shape. Linear contours suggest shapes and forms. So early on I was able to suggest monumental forms by filtering excessive mass and creating transparent geometrical sculptures, which reacted to their environment and the specificity of a site. Thus my site specific sculptures were born.
