Sculptures by Hans van Bemmelen
As I've been busy with my sculptures I got behind with developing the new web site. Hopefully that will go live in December 2017.
Here are some pictures of my current work, for the time being. For information about my sculptures please contact me at:

My work often includes elements informed by architecture and engineering and is generally fabricated from plate and tube rather than cast or carved, i.e. it is direct metal sculpture.
This summer I re-installed some of my six outdoor sculptures at Rabley Contemporary, on a wonderful site in the rolling Wiltshire landscape.
The gallery also has two of my CH table sculptures (outdoor version) on display in the courtyard. The Rabley pieces 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 - they could be described as 2.5D forms, like much of my work.
