This is a lovely limited edition pigment print of Paradise Ducks at the Top of Lake Wakatipu on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
Known to the Māori as Pūtangitangi, but now commonly referred to as the "paradise duck". The paradise shelduck is New Zealand’s only shelduck, a worldwide group of large, often semi-terrestrial waterfowl that have goose-like features. Paradise shelducks are commonly observed flying in pairs or grazing on pasture and are very vocal birds.
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.
