Art…

July 13, 2010

Just wanted to share my latest purchases…

First:

Luke Roberts: Pope Alice Encounter series 2002

This is the SHIT!!

Holy Green Cow Loves this and I am soooo lucky to own this. Ah ite!!

I would love to meet Pope Alice. Holy Green Cow meets the Pope… Brisbane rules!!!

Pope Alice 🙂

Next is something that Jean and I have been after since before I started Uni… a Ray Cook.

This isn’t the one Jean was after, but you cant say no. Ray is one of Australia’s best Photographic artists and it’s his unique vision and humour that really appeal to me. Plus he has helped steer my art more than anyone. Even my psychologist…

Funny thing is he wouldn’t even know or care, but I have a really deep respect for Ray and his art. OMG this is starting to sound EMO… just look him up and see for yourself. Before I start trying to cut myself for attention.

Gigi by Ray Cook

Lastly, Jean and I were lucky enough to get this amazing work by one of our favourite people… Renata Buziak.

This is the second purchase of Renatas work, but that should just tell you that we love what she does…

Grevillia Intricate 8/9 2006

These three artists are among the best that this country has to offer, so these purchases are extremely gratifying. Go, buy your own art.

It’s good for the soul.

Remember this when the Holy Green Cow exhibition opens at the QCP in August….   🙂

And now for something completely different…

Divine Inspiration...

Went wine shopping yesterday and could not go past these three. Two are from the SOME YOUNG PUNKS winemakers in South Australia and I was lucky to buy the last bottle of ‘The Squid’s Fist’ Sangiovese/Shiraz that was there.

I love their style and from the reviews I have read, I think I’ll love their wine even more. Holy Green Cow thoroughly recommends you check them out…

The other bottle is from R WINES and I’m assured this is a BIG Shiraz. ‘ a wine that will body slam your tongue’ – let’s hope.

Obviously these labels fit right into the Holy Green Cow ethos, so it is a pleasure to bring them to you via this blog. After all, 97% of all my inspiration comes after quite a few glasses of red, so it’s only fair to start giving back  🙂

Cheers!!!
