This piece was made to highlight the issues of 'canned' hunting which is rife in the US with framed White Tailed Deer, which are overbred in various ways to give the stags as many points as possible on their antlers to make them more attractive to become 'trophies'.

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 Tusk.org with proceeds of the book going toward helping their cause.Read Less
