The titles which I give my works are very often descriptive of what is happening within the sculpture - or they can be associative - because I had a certain feeling about, or association with something after the work was finished. There are no cases where my sculpture was preceded by its title; I've never started with a tile and fitted a sculpture to it.

I find titles only important to be able to talk about a sculpture without having to refer to it is as having been named untitled. Maybe it is the same as naming a newborn child; I couldn't imagine not doing that. In the case of Françoise, I re-named a sculpture (the last of the perpendicular cylinders series), which I had just completed, after my colleague and friend Françoise van den Bosch, whom had died the night before I was to visit her at her house in the Amsterdam Jordaan. It had been one of her favorite works.

So I feel that, even though a sculpture must not be dependent on its name, it is completed by having one. At least it can be referred to from that moment.
