This is a lovely limited edition pigment print called Beware the Shining Cuckoo on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
The Shining Cuckoo or Pīpīwharauroa in Māori (shining bronze-cuckoo in Australia) is a summer migrant to New Zealand. It is common throughout New Zealand but it is small and cryptically-coloured and so is more often heard than seen. It has a distinctive whistling call. Two intriguing aspects of its life history are its brood-parasitic habits and the long annual trans-oceanic migration.
Emma-Kate loves and finds inspiration in the Queenstown Lakes district of New Zealand’s South Island. Surrounded by some of the most stunning flora and fauna in the world, she pursues a number of mediums to express what she sees. She’s built her practice around her fascination with the forms that emerge as a function of light in her subjects. She delights in line creating shapes, the forming of an expressive and abstracted fluid geometry. Her pleasure in deeply observing the world around her translates to nuanced colour palettes full of mood and feel.
