Professor Bronner (1881-1992) developed a new art knowledge with his sculpture lessons at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. He is considered to be the founder of the group "The Figurative Abstraction". This was the beginning of the “Nieuwe Beelding”, after which various movements arose, both in the Netherlands (Amsterdam School, De Stijl) and in other European countries (for example in Germany, Bauhaus and France, Cubism). The different movements followed in quick succession. A hundred years later, the influences of this movement can still be found in contemporary art. The basis of my development are the lessons of my teacher Jan van Luijn (1916-1995). He was a student of Prof. Bronner. My work is therefore partly visibly linked to work from this interesting time. Although there are clear similarities (viewers sometimes call my work cubist), my work has developed in its own way. By limiting myself to planes and lines (especially in "Silent Moments, bent in Queen", or the combination of the two "Standing woman's torsos") I get to the essence of the subject. The limitation gives the image a deeper level, which for me leads to an interesting shape and a powerful image without frills: the essence becomes visible.
