Tineke Van der Eecken


Tineke Van der Eecken shifts her focus from the tributaries of rivers and forests to the oceans with a breathtakingly intricate display of sculpture and jewellery, precious metals and plastic.

In their conquest of oceans, humans use technology to push complex ecosystems to the brink of extinction, confounding inhabitants with seismic blasts, dredging and drilling. We fish populations of sea life –– living or dead –– and dump continents of plastic. Plastic engulfs the ocean, from surface to the bottom of the deep sea.

Tineke’s intricate sculptures bring a poetic nuance to the natural marine world. Her storytelling, fine lacework, exquisite jewellery and works created through corrosion casting evoke an interconnectedness. You are invited to dive into a world of complexity, gut and heart, grief and loss, joy and wonder.
