Ambit explores the ecosystem of Ōhuiarangi, Pigeon Mountain. It exists nestled amongst ever-encroaching urban developments occupying an interesting status as both protected Māori land, and land used recreationally for sport, scouts, and child care. Despite this Ōhuirangi maintains the survival of a complex and beautiful array of plantlife, and is rife with abstract, organic rock forms and landscapes.
An important part of identity is where you position and locate yourself artistically, culturally, socially and physically. This series is part of that exploration, addressing the mountain as something important to me, and seeking to document my relationship with it intimately and respectfully- through my traversal of its terrain.
