Linda van Niekerk will be launching her latest collection UNTAMED at Courtesy of the Artist Custom on Thursday the 26th of April, 6 – 8 pm.
UNTAMED is a series where Linda explores the beauty of evolution and survival with one of nature’s most beautiful elements, wood.
We live in an age where we are told through the bombardment of advertising and the advancement of modern technology, that humans need to be in constant pursuit of perfection.
Very rarely is ‘natural aged beauty’ celebrated today, which is why Linda has unapologetically created her latest work UNTAMED.
Linda has teamed ‘weathered’ silver works with a selection of works in driftwood, where each unique piece tells a different story of survival.
From the gentle movement underwater to the raging rivers of time, each precious piece of driftwood finds its way from the deep Tasmanian forests into the creative hands of van Niekerk, so she can fashion them into jewellery designs that uphold its majesty with aged perfection.
UNTAMED is bold.
UNTAMED is beautiful.
UNTAMED is a collection for the empowered.
UNTAMED is for those who understand their own strength.
Linda proves that discovery of form when nature takes hold, is the celebration of a life UNTAMED and one that has truly lived.
“It is my desire to create simple sculptural pieces that encourage the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.” Linda van Niekerk
