‘Gum leaves have such fabulous shapes and colours, this group of artworks is an experimentation of these things.'
Form, surface and shadow are an integral part of Liz McAuliffe's artworks. The leaves sit closely at the intersection between 2D and 3D, being cut canvas they are flat, then with wire and hanging points to hold them out from the wall, this gives movement and shadow, reminiscent of the dappled forest.
I have long coveted these huge original canvas sculptures by NZ artist, Liz McAuliffe for our home, and to now be showcasing them to you, is truly such a privilege.
Everyone is mesmerised by them.
