Artists talk by Tineke Van der Eecekn alongside her touring exhibition Tributaries, currently on show at Rockingham Arts Centre.
Tributaries is a new body of work by multidisciplinary artist Tineke Van der Eecken who explores the fibres of flora, fauna, and human systems.
Her meticulous works look carefully and closely at the materials and systems that make up the natural world. She presents jewellery, small fine metal sculptures, and biological objects formed by corrosion casting, alongside photographic images that represent the life and death thrum of fragile arterial systems: root, river, skeleton, and vein.
Her concepts are articulated through exceptionally crafted jewellery and sculptures, and objects that sit between these categories, as well as poetry and photography.
Join Tineke for a free artist talk on Saturday from 2pm - 3pm.
