Fragmented Freedom – #Blue by Louise McNaught. Each print in this edition is hand signed and numbered by the artist from an edition of 50 and is printed on Somerset Velvet 300gsm paper.

This piece is about the preciousness of our natural world, and how the most beautiful things may disappear due to the intervention of man and technology, symbolised dripping paint. The zebra looks as though it is unravelling, fading away. The paint is rising up like the zebra is disappearing into the ether, adding a sense of the numinous….

The original was put on a square canvas to echo the shape of man. Zebras are a metaphor for something that is ‘literal’, when you are looking at something in ‘black and white’, and as beasts they are sure-footed and poised. To see such a strong, iconic and steadfast animal in this vulnerable manner challenges our perceptions about how we treat nature and the environment.

Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich, and she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation....   Louise‘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. 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 relfects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species.   By subverting traditional representation she hints at darker consequences, yet paradoxically giving animals an elevated status. Her animals are a medium for self-expression, as lack of conext and background suspends the creatures in an internal or even numinous space, where they become a metaphor for the human condition and psyche.   Just as we use highlighters to mark areas of importance, McNaught is doing this with fluorescent media. 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.
