The natural world is so full of wonder and we can all tell tales of times we have been surprised, awed and inspired by its power. This week we discovered the winner of this year’s National History Museum Photography of the Year competition ‘A tale of two foxes’ captured by Don Gutoski.
Gutoski’s entry beat competition from 42,000 other entries from around the world, including images taken of a Bryde’s whale and a newt on the surface of a stream. The natural world is prime fodder for artistic inspiration and many artists see recreating these scenes as a challenge worth taking on.
Vibrant and talented Katy Jade Dobson is just one such artist. Using a palette of vivid colours and a subtle technique to apply oil onto board, beautifully capturing the movement and energy of her wildlife scenes.
Dobson has recently presented the gallery with three new pieces capturing the the graceful interactions between animals of the same species. Set to a mono tone background, Dobsons colourful creations jump at their audience and present a majestic dance between the animals. These signed limited editions pick out the traits of well known animals such as the graceful movement of a smack of jellyfish or the hectic movement of a charm of hummingbirds, and translate their presence onto our walls.
Katy’s minimalistic, semi-abstract forms depict both movement and emotion of a captured moment.
