natural science

November 22, 2021

There isn’t a single one of Moira Frith‘s paintings that I don’t love. With a background in  zoology and ecology, nature is a central theme in this young British artist’s work. There’s an elephant with a pomegranate on her back, a dancing cheetah, and snails, ladybugs and grasshoppers all loosely sketched in watercolour, gouache, pencils, oil pastels, ink and crayons. Folk and medieval art are influences, too. “I try not to take my paintings too seriously, so I hope that’s reflected in the work and that they make people smile.”
