A few months ago I made a sculpture for a cemetery called Moscowa in Arnhem, The Netherlands. It is made of new imperial red granite and is 225 cm high.
When the sculpture was created the inner space arose. And as I was gazing through this inviting window, hoping to see the other side, it appeared to me that these two worlds could meet.

Last month I was allowed to make a sculpture in Czech Republic. Hidden beneath the beautiful scenery of a small village called Lhota-Vlasenice, you can find the granite. And as this place has all the aspects of a little paradise, they are making their own magical garden there with beautiful plants and sculptures to enjoy.

On one of the hills in the beautiful landscape of the Adelaide Hills region in Australia, there is a place called “The Cedars”. This year ten sculptors were invited by the Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium (www.adelaidehillssculpture.com.au) to come to this place and carve a work of art for the Hills Sculpture Trail, which was an idea founded by a group of volunteers in 2011 and the sculptor Silvio Apponyi to “enrich the Hills with sculpture.
“The View 2”
My work “The View 2 ” is made in the australian “Black Hill black granite” . The sculpture is 260 cm high and can be twisted on its base. The sculpture was commissioned by the Klein Family Foundation to enrich the entrance of the Ngeringa Cultural Centre (www.Ngeringaculturalcentre.com) at Mt. Barker.–
