'Four Rivers 'by Tessel van der Putte is an original works of acrylic on canvas made and created in 2024. 

 

This piece is part of Tessel's Body Current series. 

 

Drawing inspiration from the wet landscapes of the Netherlands, Tessel’s vibrant palette and contrasting hues, evoke the ebb and flow of waters meeting the shoreline.

 

This style is a metaphor for the fluidity and cyclical nature of life: bodies, borders, and natural boundaries are always changing and in a constant dance with the elements.

 

As such, the figures in her paintings are not static entities, but rather fluid forms intertwined with their surroundings. Borders blur, and distinctions between the self and the environment dissolve, reflecting the interconnectedness of all living beings.

 

Meditating on our internal “ emotional landscapes” , this fluidity extends beyond the physical realm to encompass changing dynamics of social structures, cultural boundaries, gender roles, and identities.

Four Rivers (2024)

Acrylic on canvas 

100 x 120cm 

 

This piece is framed in a beautiful wooden frame created bespokely to hold the piece deeply and with a solid chain for hanging on the back. All frames are hand-crafted and painted by Tessel's dad. Tessel selects the colour of the frame by choosing one of the darkest hues of paint from the piece itself. This gives a beautiful finish to an already beautiful piece.
