One of the words for an artist in New Zealand Māori is "mahi ā ringa" which means work by hand and this is one of a series of paintings and prints where a female Māori-like ancestral figure's tongue turns into a hand. The tongue, words, turn into hands that are at work. In this work I've focussed on creating a sense of energy/spirit (wairua) in the spaces between the hands as a symbol for spiritual and passionate love.
