Fire and Water is a limited edition giclee print by Louise McNaught. The beauty of Kingfishers was highlighted to the Artist as a young girl as her father is an avid fisherman. This piece shows the stunning Kingfisher diving down for its prey in the river bed. The Kingfisher is on fire with blue flames, as it is becoming endangered in parts of the UK, and its such a beautiful, electric little bird – normally all you see is a sudden flash of bright turquoise when you see one flash past you…..
We offer two beautiful framing choices on our artwork, of either a 38mm flat white natural wooden grain frame with a white mount backing and natural glass, or a 38mm black flat natural wooden grain frame, with black mount backing and natural glass. These modern choices compliment the artwork perfectly and suit most decors.
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.
