Marja Tukker Atelier.
Marja Tukker practices art since 1967, starting out with weaving techniques. Nowadays she combines all the crafts she learned over the years to make an absolute unique composition of materials and techniques. This allows her to create without boundaries in all dimensions of form and color. Since 1992 she is living and working in Curaçao and thus since then incorporating Caribbean influences.
The contrast of natural and smooth textures keeps fascinating me. Most of my metal sculptures therefore also include materials such as coconut frond and pine tree bark from my home garden. Sculptures made with these materials are usually resistant to the elements and therefore may be placed in as well as outdoors. Outdoors, the copper in my works will develop it’s own patina or it can be sealed to preserve its bright colors.
