About The Artwork

Unique painting with decals on a glazed ceramic plate. Fired to 750 C°. "Lara and the Lost World" is part of a serie of art works dealing about the dramatically decrease of insects and the fast disappearing of nature's diversity. I found an old picture on a fleamarket, of a little girl, looking sad into the world. On the backside stood her name: Lara. She symbolizes the current state of human kind, harming life on earth.

Karin van de Walle, the Netherlands) studied at the Academy of Arts AKV Sint Joost with a major in Ceramic Sculpture, in Breda, The Netherlands. She lives and works in Germany. Since 1989 Karin has an international platform, exhibiting her work in many different European cities. In 1994 she moved to Germany. In this inspiring environment, near the lake Constance with magnificent panoramic views  to Switzerland and Austria, she decides to starts up her studio and  work as an independent fulltime artist. For a while she leaves the ceramic discipline, in order to cut loose of all the academy influences, to find a way of her own by starting to paint. In the next 6 years she exhibits her paintings successfully on numerous places in the south of Germany and in Holland. These paintings are the inspiration to go back to the ceramic and other materials and the 3D media again. She uses, as she did on the academy, mixed media techniques, with most of the time,clay as a starting material .  She starts to portray strong women in an unconventionell own language.Her sculptures cross boundaries, both in a technical sense and in terms of content. She likes to play with exaggerated expression in both the form and the ornaments. Motifs from various cultures, and historical, mythylogical elements, are an essential part of her artistic language. Her perfectly constructed sculptures balance between art and camp with a sense of humour, between hedonistic archetypes, which hold up a mirror to the times we live in and divine female power.
