Growth elements (1972) Leen Droppert
This red and blue column by artist Leen Droppert has been standing at a public school on the Nachtegaallaan 1972 in Rozenburg since 1. In 2014 the columns ended up in storage because of the demolition of the outdated school building. Since 23 in May 2018 the Growth elements van Droppert in the grass again at a new location, the Fazantenpad. This work is very related to the later three columns of Growth forms (1978), which are located next to the GGD in the center of Rotterdam, at the Schiedamsedijk. The rhythm here is set in two, with slightly more form differences.
Leen Droppert (Vlaardingen, 1930) attended the Amsterdam Graphic School during the day and the Art Academy in Rotterdam in the evenings. From the early fifties he works as a visual artist and spatial designer, many in Rotterdam and the surrounding area. Droppert completed it in 2008 Flood pile project Vettenoordse Polder in Vlaardingen: four flood poles, which indicate the water level of the storm surge from 1775. In 2010, the Vlaardingen Museum organized a retrospective exhibition for its 80th birthday.
