About

PRIVATE VIEW - FIRST THURSDAY: 4th July 6-9pm ARTIST TALK: 25th July 6 — 8.30 pm DegreeArt are proud to announce Louise McNaught's inaugural solo exhibition and residency. McNaught graduated from Greenwich University with a BA Hons in Fine Art in 2012, since then she has made phenomenal developments both in her progression and artistic output. During her residency at Degreeart, McNaught will be exploring the concept of 'Animals as Deities' drawing inspiration from symbolism, mythologies, folklore and religion; where nature is viewed as something sacred. McNaught will seek to heighten and elevate their status through her artwork and imagery. Her paintings vary in scale and medium, from small and precious works through to large iconic pieces. McNaught has always given nature centre stage in her work, as something mysterious, infinite and boundless and something we don't fully understand yet... McNaught's creations feature natures and the celestial realms in glorious, blazing neon hues, which creates a startling aesthetic where animals are sublime and ethereal in their luminescence. Not wishing to limit 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. To further heighten the viewer's perception the residency space itself will be transformed into a shrine further echoing the divinity of the animals depicted. McNaught is hoping to share with the viewer the awe that the natural world inspires within her.
