Karin van Ommeren’s ‘Awareness Stone’ symbolizes eternity through a composition that has no beginning and no end. Ommeren studies our perception of space and volume, and is intrigued by what can be represented through the dynamic spaces found within her work, and how these spaces can impact our awareness.
Karin van Ommeren studied sculpture at Brussels’ Academy for Fine Art, with a dedicated focus in stone sculpture. In 1993, she won her first prize at an international stone sculpture competition in Taiwan, for which she created a new work for the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. From 1993 to 1999, she was a regular participant in Japan’s Toyamura Sculpture Biennale.
In 2013, van Ommeren was the recipient of the Liu Kaiqu Excellence Award in Wuhu, China. She has exhibited widely and participated in more than 50 international sculpture symposiums. Most recently, solo exhibitions of her works have been held at Etienne Gallery, Oisterwijk, Netherlands; DML Gallery, Oostduinkerke, Belgium and Galerie Delfi Form, Zwolle, Netherlands.
