Description

Making Art to Create Change.

“Queen Kereru with her cloak of feathers”. This has been a collaborative artwork between Corina Hazlett and her youngest students aged 6- 12years.

Corina Hazlett Artist Studio has partnered up with the Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust for this project. 100% of the sale will go towards the trusts work facilitating natural regeneration of native forest areas in conjunction with increasing public access ways, enabling families to enjoy the beautiful walks on the Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand.

"This has been a wonderful project for my youngest students raising awareness through their art for the valuable work that Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust does. The artwork is approx 1mx70cm. Mixed media on Stretched canvas. Each young artist has created their own unique feather with Acrylic Ink to add to the bird. Using metallic uniball pens on top of the inks the children decorated their feathers. There are approx 50 feathers that were individually made by the children which reminded us more of a traditional Maori cloak as opposed to just the bird’s own feathers hence the title “Queen Kereru with her cloak of feathers”. The background is iconic of my designs with an image of a person’s face repeat stencilled showing through flowers using acrylic and ink. The birds head is adorned with a crown of the native kowhai flower which is painted in acrylic paint." -Corina Hazlett , artist

Why did we choose the Kereru for our bird?

We spoke in class about natural regeneration of native forest areas.

The Kereru was a perfect fit as it is essential for seed dispersal. The kereru has the widest gape of all New Zealand native birds, which allows it to eat large berries. This makes them vital to our forest ecosystem, as trees such as karaka, miro, tawa and taraire rely on them for seed dispersal. Kereru are one of New Zealand’s keystone species, essential for the ongoing propagation of some of our native plant species.
