Height on pedestal
To be seen
In the shopping centre of Olst in the Aaldert Geertstraat.
There is a sketch plan of this sculpture (height 12 cm)
In this sculpture my own handwriting is obvious. With the solid, robust shape you can be very clear in the outlines, but also sustain the details. Some people say that this sculpture reminds them of Wenckebach’s ‘Monsieur Jacques’ (Kröller Müller Museum). And they are absolutely right. I was definitely inspired by Wenckebach when I made this sculpture. Wait a minute, isn’t that plagiarism? With regard to this question I must always think of language. My language sounds very much like my mother’s. But in the end, what I express with this language is my business.
