Hikurangi Edwards (Of Ngāruahine, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and Ngāpuhi descent) meticulously hand-carves into layers upon layers of paint from her Wellington studio, a technique she calls mahi whakairo peita. Often guided by her tīpuna, she uses contrasting colours to acknowledge contemporary lifestyles, whilst telling stories of the past, present, & future. The soft, yet confident curves of the koru give depth & texture, drawing you in to an art that must be touched. All of which speaks to the dichotomy of the two worlds she navigates. 

Raukura - albatross feather/s. Used by prophets Te Whiti o Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi as a symbol of peace on Earth and goodwill to all.
