Once I was at the roof top of a friend of mine who held an exhibition in her home at Leischendam, looking over ‘De Sluisjes’ (the locks) in the centre. I saw the opportunity to exploit some great diagonals and to make some kind of surrealistic version of ‘De Peperbus’ (‘the pepper canister’) – the village church at Leidschendam. I kept the rest in my own roundism style.
