About this piece:

'Wild and Wee - Glistening Fox Cub, acrylic, ink and glitter on linen, 20x20x4cm 
This piece is from my 'Wild and Wee' collection, which is a minature painting range I have created which can be mixed and matched, sizing from 10-20cm. This baby fox cub is the epitome of innocence and I have reflected this by adding a iridescent sparkle to the white areas, which can be seen shimmering in the lights (it was very hard to photograph though!)...

Chantelle Purcell Interviews Louise McNaught from Degree Art on Vimeo.

Education: Fine Art Bsc (Hons), Univeristy of Greenwich (2012)

Louise McNaught‘s creations feature nature, animals, and the celestial realm in glorious, blazing neon hues, where the animals are God-like, Sublime and ethereal in their luminescence. Not wishing to limit herself or her subject matter, McNaught has a mixed-media approach which usually manifests in painted-drawings on traditional and sometimes unusual supports, such as celestial maps. 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. By subverting traditional representation she hints at darker consequences, yet paradoxically giving animals an elevated status with the neon paint making them look as though they have their own inner light and are literally shining from within. Just as we use highlighter pens to mark areas of importance, McNaught is doing this with fluorescent paint. By drawing the viewers attention to the animals presence and energy, McNaught is hoping to share with the viewer the awe that the natural world inspires within her.

 

"Her work presents a pleasant balance between traditional technique and new age spunk" The Quiet Lunch Magazine
