‘Soul Mates - #Pink’ is a Full Bleed Giclée print by sought after contemporary artist Louise McNaught. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet paper, and hand finished with gold leaf detail, the print is from a limited edition of 33 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of Louise McNaught takes its inspiration form the natural world: raising the status of animals and creatures to the majestic and sublime, McNaught creates bold images, using striking colour and compositional techniques. For ‘Soul Mates - #Pink’, McNaught employs her signature ‘bleed’ motif, where thin lines of pink paint run down the print, producing a sense of dynamism and flow.
The trail of pink paint has been created by two, graphite-grey elephants, who stand at the centre of the print, their pink-painted trunks entwined. McNaught gestures towards the significance of the animal in Asian religious cultures, by adding henna patterns in hand applied golf leaf - a delicate and textured touch, that sits beautifully against the hot-pink and soft-grey tones.
