Sculptures by Hans van Bemmelen
As I've been busy with my sculptures I got behind with developing the new site. Hopefully that will go live in December 2013.
Here are some pictures of my current work, for the time being. For information about my sculptures please contact me at:

This summer I installed six outdoor sculptures at Rabley Contemporary, on a wonderful site in the rolling Wiltshire landscape.
They also have some of my CH table sculptures.
My work often includes elements informed by architecture and engineering and is generally fabricated from plate and tube
rather than cast or carved. The pieces in the Rabley Series are intended to contrast with the landscape, while also drawing
attention to elements in it. In that sense they serve as framing devices or oculi. The colours refer to agricultural machinery.
Although the pieces define 3D space, they do not enclose it, being composed of essentially 2D elements. In that sense,
they could be described as 2.5D forms, like much of my work.
The Arthouse Gallery in Bournemouth has some of my CH series table sculptures in stock.
