From the official website of Lakefront Sculpture Exhibit..
Verbeek works for an ecological excavating company building and restoring wetlands, ponds, and parks. To him sculpture consists of two elements, the work itself and the environment in which it exists. His sculptures are evolving from strictly steel into a new form of organic-inorganic combinations.
“Living Sculpture” is a breathing, self-sufficient entity. The fourteen-foot steel shell stands like a balancing seed surrounding and supporting a culture of Sedum plants of varying species and colors, all hearty and succulent. “Living Sculpture” has utilized organic material and blurred the lines between sculpture and environment. The elevation serves as the connection of mass to earth, producing lightness.
