The Meme Theory at work in 2013

January 9, 2013

S.A.T.A.N.

 

Following on from the article in the Sunday Mail a few weeks ago, it seems that HolyGreenCow has experienced yet another 15 minutes of fame!

A recent visitor to the Queensland Centre for Photography in South Brisbane happened upon the ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told 2‘ exhibition and passed it along to a prominent (and distinguished)  blogger in the USA. Many thanks for the kind words too!!

Check out the blog here

 

The self perpetuating nature of the internet and the irony that this work itself could become viral (kinda viral – 20,000 hits in 2 days) is quite amusing.

Even if the subsequent traffic crashed my site twice … The sales of the work have more than made up for it    🙂

 

Have a Happy 2013  Y’all.

Cheers!!

Ian

 

Sunday Mail 16/12/12

December 16, 2012

With only a few days left before the Mayan Calendar runs out, Sally Browne at the Sunday Mail has written a fantastic article about my current show in today’s Sunday Mail.

The Greatest Story Ever Told 2  is on at the QLD Centre for Photography until the 13th of January. Assuming the Mayans were just lazy and we will all still be here.

Since it was a day after HolyGreenCow’s 3rd anniversary on the planet, this is a really special way to celebrate!!

Cheers

Happy Birthday Ver 3.0

December 15, 2012

three-cupcakes

Well, another year is over in the life of HolyGreenCow. It’s been a hectic but wonderful year and to finish it on exhibition at the QCP is awesome.

This last 12 months has been a gap year creatively, due to the relief at finishing Uni and the joy of getting to know Cordelia.

I’m pleased to be represented by my new commercial gallery Redcliffe Jetty Gallery, having made my first sales there in such a short time!!

A wonderful exhibition at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery was a stellar highlight, in a year that seems to have gone by in a flash.

Anyway, three years down and I’m looking forward to working on my new series for 2013…

Happy Birthday HGC!!

End of Year Festivities and Frivolities…

November 14, 2012

Just in time for the end of the Mayan Calendar, the QLD Centre for Photography will be hosting the first public exhibition of ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told 2’.

This series was completed late last year and was written as a look at contemporary pop culture in the guise of a Hollywood Bible Epic.

It is a wonderful coincidence for me to be showing this series at this time and I hope you can all get a long to see the work in the flesh. (Try to make it before the 22nd of December, just in case my telling of the prophecy is wrong…)

Many thanks to all who contributed to this epic work and I look forward to seeing you there with Jean and Cordelia in tow.

For more information on the work, please visit http://www.holygreencow.com

Cheers

Moreton Bay Region Art Awards

May 10, 2012

Long time no blog, but I just wanted to post this picture of the first framed image from ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told 2’.

It has made the finals of the Moreton Bay Region Art Awards and I am extremely pleased, It looks great (even if this photo doesn’t show it…)

I literally picked it up from the Framers and dropped it off, so this is my first and last look at it… Til the opening on the 18th of May.

(Cordelia’s 1st Birthday)  :p

HolyGreenCow on the 6 O’clock news !!

March 16, 2012

As part of the lead up to the opening of my THEY CAME exhibition at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, I was interviewed for the Channel Seven news at 6

It’s been a fantastic week of visiting schools and talking about my work as well as working with the wonderful staff of the BRAG, to help make the opening night really cool… and  a little different… 🙂

It’s been tough being away from Jean and Cordy all week, but this residency has been quite inspiring and I am so glad to have been invited.

Introduced by Rob Bruff :p

Meets the Star - Cordelia Grace Pool in her first major role!!!

If you didn’t get a chance to pop along to the 2011 Honours Graduate show at the QCA, there is still time. It closes Sunday.

It was Cordy’s second Art exhibition and it was clear which photo she thought was the best  :p
