Untitled (1989) Lon Pennock
Lon Pennock designed a work of art that should have a relationship with the Oost Police Station and the adjacent Hoofdweg. It was intended that the work could also be experienced from a moving car. The cubes were placed after an earlier design of whimsical shapes was rejected. The blocks are gray, but due to the placement and the light, the blocks appear to have different shades.
Besides many abstract sculptures in public space, sculptor Lon Pennock (The Hague, 1945 - there, 2020) also made drawings and collages. His images are reactions to or reinforcements of elements in their environment. They are mainly made of metal. Besides sculptor, Lon Pennock was also a teacher at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.
