Rainforest (Justin Murfitt)

Rainforest is a collection of tear drop forms which are intended to represent loss, the most literal being the loss of old growth forests that covered the Te Atatu peninsula area, but it hopefully could be any kind of loss to anyone.” (From the catalogue notes.)

Beautifully crafted in varying sizes from swamp kauri – the range of colours and the expressiveness of the grain are sensational. As is the installation within the framework of the Harbourview Sculpture Trail. One has to admire the skill of the curator (Sally Lush) whose imaginative use of the natural environment of the Orangihina wetlands combines with the creativity of the artists to an exquisite event.
