This is a lovely limited edition pigment print of a Ruru in a Kauri Tree on Hahnemühle 300gsm print paper by Emma-Kate Moore.
The Ruru is the Māori name for New Zealand’s native Morepork which is small, dark, forest-dwelling owl. It was given its Māori name, Ruru because it reflects its haunting, melancholic call. It can often be heard in the forest at dusk and throughout the night as they are a nocturnal bird. The Kauri tree is a huge New Zealand native and are among the world's mightiest trees, growing to over 50 m tall, with trunk girths up to 16 m, and living for over 2,000 years.
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.
