These months four of my new sculptures are exhibited at the Etienne Gallery in Oisterwijk. (NL)

The works were made at the beginning of this year in my studio in Pietrasanta, Italy.

They are still part of the “Carrara Series” In my blogs from october untill november last year , you can see and read more about these series.

granite-kvo The planes  and lines, caves and caverns which can be found in the landscapes of the Carrara quarries in Tuskany, Italy, are still a source of inspiration for my sculptures.

Come and see the works!

ⓒChina-sculpture-kvoThe “Beijing Yi Dongyuan Sculpture Production Center” is located in the outskirts of Beijing – it is a large factory where sculptures are made in different materials like stone, bronze, steel and polyester. It is a bustling scene – sculptures meant for all parts of the world are being made there. ⓒBeijing-sculpture-kvoThe “stone” section is separated from the rest of the factory and situated in an open field.

One of my own sculptures is being made here – I went for a visit recently to see the progress and was quite impressed. My sculpture is being made out of the splendid “Shanxi Black Stone,” one of the most beautiful granites of China. ⓒkarin-van-ommeren-sculpture-chinaThat’s me in this last photo, next to my piece, in progress .You can also see another view of my sculpture in the photo above, on the right.
