stone

 

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.

Over the course of ten years an international sculpture trail has been created in Maine, USA. This trail is situated all along the coastline and consists of 34 monumental, granite sculptures. Two years ago the idea was born in Canada to continue this trial of sculptures along the East coast of Canada.sculpture-saint-john

As I could participate in “Sculpture Saint John” I was pleased to make a sculpture for St. Andrews, a beautiful town in New Brunswick at the Passamaquoddy Bay.

The granite comes from the local “Hampstead Quarry”, a quarry of gray-pink granite. The quarry was last worked in the 1990s.karinvanommeren-stone-saintandrews“The story of the stone”  granite. 280x190x80 cm.   (the picture was taken on the workplace)

Stone is the earth on which we walk,

it gives us life and it carries our history.
