Louise McNaught is a Contemporary Artist with international representation. Her artwork has also been featured in Art Fairs in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK. She is also a published Author...
Her focus on endangered species manifested in a book called 'Survival
', which she created with worldwide publishers Big Picture Press in September 2018. The idea came from the Solo Show Louise was doing with George Thornton Gallery in 2016, also called 'Survival'. The book shows 20 endangered animals painted by McNaught, with facts about the animals plight and conservation efforts. 'Survival
' is sponsored by the well-known charity Tusk.org
with proceeds of the book going toward helping their cause. Survival is also available in the U.S with the publishers The Running Press.
Louise‘s artwork features animals that are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction, yet are juxtaposed with upward drips and often pieces of the animal starting to ebb away - creating a powerfully bittersweet imagery. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance. When focusing on endangered species the imagery often takes on a duality of not only what is happening to the animal itself, but also reflects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species.
