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

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

Honours Show

December 2, 2011

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

 

 

The Greatest Story Ever Told II

November 25, 2011

Finally, after a year, the new series is online and will debut at next weeks Grad show for Honours at QCA. (details in previous post)

This series has been incredible to make and there are so many people I would like to thank, but have already done that in person.

The Jpegs don’t do justice to the 1.5m prints, but if you can’t get to the show, there will be others in the new year!!

Stay posted.

Here it is…

New Series..

November 21, 2011

It’s been a loooooong year this year. The birth of Cordelia has been the highlight, yet this entire year has been consumed by my Honours project.

It is this that I am about to give birth to this week 🙂

Without giving too much away, here’s a poster that makes up the introduction to my new series.

All will be revealed Friday after I have been officially assessed and can unleash this fantastic series on the world!!

I can’t wait!!!
