Life Blood by Kiri Abraham (A2) - Poster Art Project
Life Blood – Kiri Abraham
About the artwork: 'Life Blood' uses natural pigments from the earth (clays found around Aotearoa) to bring to mind our more-than-human home - Her soil, plants and creatures. We are all interconnected.
About the artist: Kiri Abraham is an artist, mother, gardener, tramper and lover of nature who has lived and worked in Helensville for the past 15 years. She describes her art as ‘drawing’, although it includes painting, printing, stitch and more recently, cutting and burning. Drawing can be both a very simple process, and a complex, multi layered practise, and it is this diversity that attracts Kiri to the medium as a way of expression through mark making. She works by building up a bigger story through repeated intricate marks, the process being as integral to the piece as the finished outcome. Her work is slow, meditative and often physically challenging, and requires her to have a fully worked out concept before she begins a piece.
Kiri’s work has themes of land and ecology at its core: Human connection to place through story and materials, and the reciprocity of care and protection between humans and the earth.
