Another positive bunny post! It’s been crazy rough handling life right now, but then I remember all the times I’ve done it before (with even more stress). And then I think “hey, I’ve made it before, and I can do it again”. Except this time, I’ll do it even better.
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.
"The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed."
Mister Nelson Mandela for beeing such a great and wonderful idol to the world. Showing that unity is the key to freedom, that love is the greatest power and our heart is the biggest weapon. We are the masters of our fate and the captains of our souls. Thank you Nelson Mandela!
