This print forms part of Louise’s ‘Wild’ series which focuses on nature wearing the colours of man. The fluorescent colour used in this print signifies the animals radiating energy and is used to highlight areas of intensity and tension. Stags play an important part in Louise’s work, “I use a lot of stags in my work as they are so majestic and pure like they are wearing ornate crowns on their heads. They are powerful and yet so peaceful. I love that juxtaposition and how they are symbolic of standing your own ground and overcoming life’s obstacles. I believe I am also drawn to stags 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”
