Intro
The natural world continues to inspire Linda’s work. She was intrigued to notice that several of the new driftwood works created for her latest exhibition evoked various spirit forms.

Artist list

Linda van Niekerk
The exhibition works include weathered silver pieces to represent the spirit or essence of the environment with suggestions of gum leaves, fungi, branches and thorn bushes. 

Spirits, as guardians, are embodied in the Tasmanian driftwood works as talismanic forms of animals, birds, friendly beings or touchstones. 
 
My inspirations go hand in hand with my desire to imbue the work with a simple elegance that sits well on the body and encourages the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.
/ Linda van Niekerk, December 2018
