Henk Zweerus (1920 – 2005) sculptures, drawings, gouaches
Henk Zweerus (1920 – 2005) searched as a sculptor for the relationship between visual art and architecture. He began experimenting in the early fiftiesas and 1960s with rectangular volumes in concrete and wood. His images that he called ‘statuettes’ are also buildings. In 1957 he made the first abstract image in Amsterdam that can still be seen in Leidsebosje. Zweerus was also an avid draftsman and had an almost inexhaustible abstract idiom. He made more than 10.000 works on paper. In addition to his sculptures a selection of these drawings and gouaches will also be exhibited.
From 1950 to 1955, Zweerus taught with Aldo van Eyck at the AKI in Enschede. At the Delft University of Technology, where he was professor of form studies at the Architecture Department for more than twenty years, he inspired countless architects, including Carl Weeber, Jan Benthem, Mick Eekhout and Pi de Bruijn.
The work of Henk Zweerus can be seen at two locations; at Bert Kuipers Kunsthandel Lonnekerspoorlaan 104 in Roombeek and at Van der Jeugd Architecten Nieuwe Schoolweg 4 in Enschede.
