Artist list

Linda van Niekerk
Linda’s fascination with the natural world, in particular the Tasmanian wilderness is once again on show in the body of work she has entitled ECO: ECHO

She has played on the similarity of the two words. Although all works reference the natural world in one way or another, those inspired by the idea of ‘Eco’ feature bold works in recycled silver that has been finished to mimic the weathering and shedding of the beautiful Tasmanian eucalyptus plus works in wood - both fine hand-turned timbers and works featuring Tasmanian wilderness driftwood.

The works inspired by the idea of ‘Echo’ feature works that resemble an echo wave and also some that reference (or echo …) previous signature works of Linda’s.

Although my inspirations come from many sources, my desire is always to create simple sculptural pieces that encourage the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall. / Linda van Niekerk, Huon Valley, Tasmania
