About The Piece
Curlew in the Estuary, but for How Long is a variable edition inscribed woodcut print with muted colours, soft curves and patterns of the salt marsh. Words narrating the uncertain fate of the curlew are scribed into the wet ink. This elegant bird with its evocative call is now on the brink of extinction, given the same near threatened status as the jaguar. Hilary Kington describes herself as a wildlife watcher, painter and printmaker with a passion for salt marshes. She says “In our fragile world conservation is now a key element of my art.
