Prue MacDougall Statement for ‘Matariki Awakening’ 2022
In MacDougall’s work nature is often superimposed and imbued with human traits and qualities having an ancient, mythical presence. Terra alludes to mother earth, depicting stark, leafless trees that rise from the profile of the female face submerged beneath the surface. Trees are essential to our sense of well-being and to our feelings of rootedness. A celebration of the wonder that lies in our everyday experience. Legends and mythologies are full of trees that comprehend and articulate the meaning of existence.
