The Confluence

Re-imagining worlds of profound connectivity and symbiosis with nature

Tessel van der Putte is a visual artist and published researcher based in the water-rich country of The Netherlands. Growing up below sea level and spending much time in nature as a child, her work is strongly influenced by her interactions with bodies of water. Her work centers around themes of water movement through an eco-feminist lens, focussing on figurative archetypes that merge with dreamlike, abstract spaces in vibrant color palettes.

Initially approaching her art as a tool of mindfulness, and inspired by her human rights and nature conservation background, Tessel's work explores our interdependent relationship with the natural world. Ultimately, Tessel's work aims to transcend feelings of separation, connecting us not only with our natural environment but also with each other and (the nature we find in) ourselves.
