The first time i encountered the name of Vroegindeweij was at the time i started to take an interest in the students who visited the”Ateliers 63″ academy. Leo Vroegindewij was a student at Ateliers 63 in the years 1976-1978 and finshed his studies around the time i started my publishing years at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. It is also the years i took an interest in the Art & Project gallery which was one of the f
irst to show the works by Leo Vroegindeweij. I like his sculkptures however they are not very suited for the living room and really need space and only galleries and museum s can presdent them in a proper way and for me that is the reason i never considered buying a work by Vroegindeweij. They need “room to move” and it is hard to realize such space in a family home. Still, his works must be admired and whenever a small one comes to the market i promissed myself to reconsider buying one.
