‘The Wild Is Calling’ is a beautiful original piece from contemporary artist Louise McNaught. This piece is produced using pencil, acrylic, Gold and variegated gold leaf and painted onto a deep edge canvas.
‘The Wild Is Calling’ forms part of Louise McNaught’s ‘Wild’ Series which in the artists words are about nature wearing the colours of man like war paint, trying to adapt to man's intervention’.
The fluorescent paint adds a radiating energy to the animal and with the addition of the gorgeous gold leaf as the backdrop elevates the status of the animal – a method used in traditional religious paintings. Louise McNaught uses a lot of Stags in her work as she believes them to be majestic and pure and almost like they are wearing ornate crowns on their heads. McNaught finds herself attached to the beautiful creature as ‘it's the Scottish in me and I just love their anthropomorphic qualities, when they stare at you it's like they are staring into your soul’. This piece is signed by the artist.

About The Artist - Louise McNaught

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. She also became a published Author in 2018. Her artwork has also been featured in art fairs in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK.

Louise‘s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. 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 reflects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species. Her focus on endangered species has manifested in a book called 'Survival', which Louise created with worldwide publishers Big Picture Press in September 2018. The idea came from the Solo Show Louise was doing with George Thornton Gallery in 2016, also called 'Survival'. The book shows 20 endangered animals painted by McNaught, with facts about the animals plight and conservation efforts. 'Survival' is sponsored by the well-known charity with proceeds of the book going toward helping their cause.
