Acrylic on the round plywood
The fantail or pīwakawaka
(Rhipidura fuliginosa placabilis)
Most New Zealanders will be familiar with this wee bird, its distinctive fanned tail , friendly behaviour, and fluttering flight make it instantly recognizable. The birds are not shy, and will often flit within a few metres of people.
This new collection allows me to explore the fun there is to be had with language, symbolism and entrenched beliefs in a quirky, humorous way.
