This is a lovely limited edition pigment print of a Kiwi Pukupuku Amongst the Ferns on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
Kiwi Pukupuku is the Māori name for the remarkable flightless native little spotted kiwi. It is the smallest kiwi with brownish grey finely mottled or banded horizontally with white and now found only at Karori Sanctuary and on a few predator free islands such as Kapiti and Tiritiri Mātangi. Kiwi birds are nocturnal birds and so only venture out of their burrow to feed at night.
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.
