Solo Exhibition: Israel Birch - Art Collector

Israel Birch, Uira, 2012. Lacquer on stainless steel. 100 x 300cm

Following a strong family tradition of respected Maori carvers, Birch seeks to bring the historical act of carving into a contemporary context. Each image is composed of etched patterns that Birch grinds and carves into stainless steel. Circles, orbs and lines lie beneath layers of pigment that generate a dense red iridescence akin to fire and deep royal blues that resemble water.
