This is a lovely limited edition pigment print of a Kererū in a Cabbage Tree on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
The native Kererū is a large, distinctively-coloured pigeon with iridescent green and bronze feathers on its head and a smart white vest. They are familiar sight to many people throughout New Zealand as they are widespread across the country in both forests and urban habitats. The noisy beat of their wings is a distinctive sound and they will often ascend slowly before making impressively steep parabolic dives. Tī kōuka is the Māori name for the New Zealand native cabbage tree. It is one of the most distinctive trees in the New Zealand landscape, especially on farms. They grow all over the country, but prefer wet, open areas like swamps.
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.
