On Top


Life is a construction / of basic elements. // If these are at place / you might fix a position / on top. (stone, wood, metal, paint)

Someone spoke to me


"You tell me who it was" (temporary sculpture / - installation, recycling)

Two, and four


Two elemental figures / or are these figural elements./ Become two only when placed together. //  Which defines space. // Space captures the elements // The elements format space.// Space dictates the artist. //  Which makes four: elements, space and artist.

The Innocents - 2


When approaching for battle / you do less harm / if you leave your weapons at home / and your head in a mesh.   (Made from trash, recycling art, welding by my brother Wim)

The Embedded Journalist


"War is black and white / them and us / with us being rightful / and them awful. // So what am I doing here / as embedded journalist?" (installation, recycling art)



"who climbs high / is at risk / to fall deep" (steel, iron, plastic)

The innocents - phase I


Sculptures of concrete iron.
(phase I: awaits completion). Thanks to brother Wim for welding.

After the battle


"After the battle / many suffered from / loss of memory / in particular / those without brains left".

Unforeseen, the accident


An accident by definition / is unforeseen / at least by the victim. // When those in power / create an accident / to get rid of an opponent / we rightfully should / call it murder.

Two apart


"Two are considered apart / for the sole reason / that we always want / to see some different"   (Coarse light on spring evening, Vlieland)



Says Harry to June, / Ola, see you didn't come alone? // Well no, answers June / my father and my brother wanted to come along. // Asks Harry, I count five, / who is the tall one with crutches? // The neighbor, answers June, / by name of Drareg, / and he had a single ticket in supply. In passepartout, bronze-colered metal frame behind museum-glass

Days or seconds


Days or seconds: It took 186 days / to create this sculpture. // Or was it seconds? (assemblage, concrete iron; style: temporary sculpture, lasting 1 hour, photograph remains)



Harmless: Wish more people would make / such flying objects. // The world / would be like our garden / this morning. // Sun shining on flowers with bees / and a woodpecker looking / at what woodpeckers look for. Assemblage / installation, wood, iron for concrete constructions, vinyl leather, gauze, wire and paint. (image better depicting the colors at: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/409546159837346488/ for movie: see link)



Puareo: A continent is a mess / with nationalist and populist / dictating the tone / and politicians just eager / to eat the vomit of their voters. Assemblage: wood / canvas / glove / metal / bitumen / paint (dissemblage autumn 2015)  

with a few


The mountains that I encountered, the swamps and gadflies: for millennia nearly unchanged: Once the first people came, or were these Neanderthals. People won, but whether that was the best outcome?

Foundation Help


Foundation Help strives / for all and every / who has no more / than itself / packed in idle hope / without wheelbarrow / sitting in a chair / looking at the horizon.
