This is a lovely limited edition pigment print of a Kea in the Southern Alps on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
The endangered Kea is the world's only alpine parrot, and one of the most intelligent birds. They are a large, strong-flying, olive-green parrot with scarlet underwings and a slender grey-black bill. Innately curious, kea are attracted to people wherever they enter its mountain domain, and are often a feature at South Island ski-fields and mountain huts.
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.
