‘Leaving Some Mystery’ by Louise McNaught.
Giclee with Screenprinted Gold Leaf on Highest Quality Somerset Velvet 330gsm Paper, 60x60cm.
Jellyfish symbolise acceptance, faith and ‘going with the flow’ of life. Trusting ‘all that is’ will provide it with everything it needs. I have always been fascinated with jellyfish and think they are such an underrated creature. They are not quite animal, not quite flora or fauna – though look as beautiful and elegant as flowers as they drift through the sea, and painting them is almost like painting an abstract as they do not have faces! Hoping to draw attention to their beauty and mystery, I have elevated the status of the jellyfish by placing them on gold leaf (just as religious figures were years ago) and strangely the gold leaf does give an impression of reflective water behind them – offsetting against their striking pink and red hues….
