London artist Louise McNaught creates drawings and paintings of animals that are peppered with splashes of neon color. A self-avowed nature lover, McNaught uses the neon colors to highlight her animal subjects and give them a “God-like” or “ethereal” quality. She has much more art on her Tumblr, as well as prints for sale on Society6.
McNaught primarily uses a neon colour palette to depict the presence of nature in her work, 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.
