Whether an organised array of tiny, miniature goblets made from brightly-coloured sweet wrappers, or rows upon rows of miniature chairs made from luxury wine bottle tops, Tinker’s interest and skill in re-using discarded objects chimes well with these ‘recycle’ times. Tinker’s meticulous artworks always generate considerable interest from a diverse set of admirers, be it from Art Collectors, Museums, chocolate or champagne lovers, or simply due to the fact that these beautiful, joyful artworks evoke a certain sense of nostalgia to which most of us can relate.
Joanne’s artworks are on permanent display at the Science Museum alongside work from Vivian Westwood. Recently her artwork has appeared at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition, at the New York Museum of Art and Design, and in the White Rabbit Collection, Sydney. Tinker was also recommended in The Miami Herald as one of the top picks for Art Miami / Basel week 2010. Her artworks have been featured in The Telegraph, The Evening Standard, and The Guardian as well as magazines such as Vogue, Homes and Property, Living Etc.. to name a few.
This exhibition pushes the boundaries of the creative imagination in terms of re-use, & recycle and we promise that you will never view a discarded sweet wrapper in the same way again...!
