Tombstone Tuesday: Gerrit Patist

Tombstone Tuesday: Gerrit Patist

The inscription reads Hier rust Gerrit Patist beeldend kunstenaar 23 8 1947 – 2005 2 8 (Here rests Gerrit Patist, visual artist, 23 August 1947 – 8 February 2005).

On the Dutch wikipedia I read Patist was mostly a sculptor, but the wikipedia entry is very terse (you can read it here). I have been unable to find images of his art on the web, but he did have an exposition at the Nagele museum in 2008.
