This piece depicts a young male lion cub, and is called ‘Heir’ as in the wild the strongest male ‘rules’ a pride of lions, and is very much a ‘King’ of that pride. Therefore, the strongest lion cub in that area lays his claim to the pride of that area, and inherits that ‘pride’ when he proves himself.
Lions are currently endangered in many parts of Africa, which is why the gorgeous male lion cub is depicted partially fading away in upward drips set against a sky blue background, hand finished with a ‘child-like’ crown in gold leaf…
Louise is a British artist, born in 1984, graduating in Fine arts with a BSc Hons degree from the university of Greenwich London, in 2012 and has become a professional and one of the most prolific artists today.
Having an international representation, with her artwork being featured in Art fairs across the world in places such as Milan, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK, Louise has also gone on to be a published author in 2018.
Her deep love of animals is clear to see, she godworships them and finds beauty and majesty in their luminescence, elevating them in her work to be the supreme beings that deserve respect and protection. She achieves this by reflecting upon the delicate relationship between humans and nature. Often, she features endangered species in her work to reflect and highlight that relationship, which can of course be controversial as these relationships can and are destructive.
The imagery often takes on the 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 the species. Her Book “Survival” is a manifestation of the focuses and feelings and was created between her and Worldwide Publishers, Big Picture Press in September 2018. This book is also sponsored by the well known Charity Tusk.org and the proceeds go to support the cause.
About The Artist
Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich, she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation. She also became a published Author in 2018.
Her focus on endangered species has manifested in a book called ‘Survival’, which Louise 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.
Louise‘s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. McNaught’s work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. 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.
