Intro
Born out of a design concept developed for Design Tasmania’s 2019 Award, finalist Linda van Niekerk has created a range of new works for this exhibition. The title, Out on a Limb, represents a light-hearted design comment as she once again takes inspiration from the natural – in particular, the forest – environment.

Artist list

Linda van Niekerk
Out on a Limb is also my heartfelt tribute to the precarious position of forests. Both the precious wilderness forests of my home in Tasmania and forests throughout the world.

The exhibition includes a selection of works in Tasmanian wilderness driftwood, silver and weathered silver pieces with suggestions of branches, boughs, leaves, fungi and thorns. 

As always, it is my desire that the work embodies a simple elegance that sits well on the body and encourages the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.
