Ruru - Morepork
Artist Mary Taylor
Type Limited Edition
Medium Hand Coloured Etching print
Dimensions 125mm x 105mm

Description At dusk, the melancholy sound of the morepork can be heard in forests and parks as it calls to other moreporks and claims territory. Its European name (morepork), Māori name (ruru) all echo its two-part cry. The morepork is New Zealand’s only surviving native owl. They are found in mainland New Zealand’s forests and on many offshore islands. 

Taylor's handmade etchings and paintings draw inspiration and subject matter from New Zealand's urban life, from its unique flora and fauna, landscape, seascape and pristine wilderness. Her etchings are a time-consumming and manual process following a traditional method of hand drawing on Zinc plates - acid etching and aqua-tinting or hand colouring. Each one is unique in its own right and will vary from others in the edition. 

'My art is not intended to agitate but to soothe and calm the viewer with a sense of peace and the presence of an inner life. I offer tribute to certain art styles including the stained glass tradition, medieval panels and tapestries, illustrated manuscripts and Japanese wood-blocks.'
