contemporary sculpture

 

For the sixth time the Grupo Nuestros Parques organized this year an international sculpture symposium in Santiago, Chile. Several sculptors from all over the world were invited to create a sculpture out of the local stone. These sculptures found their places in the different parks of the organisation in Chile.

This year I returned to Norway to participate in the summer exhibition in Gallery Elisabeth G.  

The gallery is situated on one of the islands in front of Osoyro, not far from Bergen. In the summer it opens its doors to show a very fine collection of graphics, paintings, glass and sculpture.

Every year people from different parts of Norway come to see the new collection.

I am very happy to be part of their collection this year. You can see my work in the gallery from the 15 th of june until the 5 th of august.

 

 

Irish limestone 210 cm high

A beautiful new symposium was born this year in Baarlo, Limburg, in The Netherlands. It is quite unique that a symposium of such high quality can take place in The Netherlands. The country does not have a great tradition for stone sculpture. But the people of the town of Baarlo see it completely differently. As the town will celebrate its 800 years birthday in 2019 the idea to organise a symposium to bring 6 new sculptures into town was born.

the place where the sculpture are made

Six international sculptors were selected and the sculptures were chosen by the population of Baarlo. With great enthusiasm 170 volunteers helped to make the symposium into an even greater success.

Now we just have to wait until the summer of 2019 to see the sculptures installed in Baarlo.

 

 

 

 

"You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands.  Take it reverently for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it"                                                                                     _Updike vlasenice-granite-scupture-knot Last month I was allowed to make a sculpture in Czech Republic.  Hidden beneath the beautiful scenery of a small village called Lhota-Vlasenice, you can find the granite. And as this place has all the aspects of a little paradise, they are making their own magical garden there with beautiful plants and sculptures to enjoy. knot-stone-sculpture
