Tineke Van der Eecken

Artist Statement

My artistic expression draws attention to the preciousness of our living planet and our role in preserving it, by connecting a through-line from the mineral substances of the earth, through to tributary forms of the living planet, and on to the aesthetic perceptions of animals and humans. As we appreciate art through sight and touch, an intimate connection is forged with our living world.
