Tamaki Estuary Series .1.

13 pieces 2009

Pine with iron filings, Acid, Zinc, Copper, Graphite, Silver.

In her carving Liz McAuliffe is known for manipulating scale to bring attention to nature and all its complexity.

With the use of iron, zinc, copper, graphite and acid she has intensified the visual experience and has highlighted the metal pollutant content now in the estuary. The glimpse of intense mangrove green is recognising the seed of hope still present in this vital estuary.

Mangroves, although not dearly loved by many, play an important part in the ecosystems of harbours – sheltering young fish, stabilising land and forming a buffer zone to absorb flood waters.
