HGC vs. Wedding Photography

December 31, 2016

Long time no anything. Sorry, but life happens. Or doesn’t…

This was a request from a good friend (Starr: A hugely talented artist and Dr. Who fan) and really made her wedding folio sing  :p

Happy New Year.

Happy 4th Birthday HGC

December 19, 2013

It’s been a long time between posts and even longer between making work.

After welcoming baby Imogen to the fray this year, life has been a never ending roller-coaster and time is non-existent.

Having said that, 2014 is a new year and I look forward to once again focussing on that which irks me as I work on a new series.

The world has changed a lot and with the impending demise of establishments such as the QCP (Thanks to the Campbell Newman regime) I am going to make work that transcends ‘photography’. Photography is maligned by the public and gallery systems alike for it’s lack of aura, something that I can appreciate, even if I don’t entirely concur with.

To me, art is art and it’s what you are looking at and consuming that is more important, than where you see it or how it is made.

The thought, not the process, is what makes art great. If it is great art, of course.

Anyway, as HolyGreenCow approached it’s 5th year of existence and no longer qualifies as an Emerging Artist, the time is now to at least think about making art. In between changing nappies, tantrums and everything else that makes parenthood so much fun…

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

Ian

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

There’s the interactive iPhone tour of my work in the gallery, that should be interesting… I’m yet to record the interviews… :/

HolyGreenCow Second Birthday!!

December 15, 2011

Today marks the 2nd Anniversary of my first use of HolyGreenCow as a pseudonym for my artistic endeavours.

It’s been a long, arduous and at times, brilliant year. Art highlights include being a finalist in the Prometheus, my inclusion in the Art bank collection and the completion of my Honours year at QCA.

Not to mention making some amazing new friends and producing work that makes me smile.

I am proud of all that I have achieved in the last 2 years but my biggest accomplishment would have to be the birth of little Cordelia  ❤

A big thanks to Jean-Maree, my wife, for putting up with me and being so supportive and Ray Cook, officially my supervisor at QCA, but unofficially, the man without whom I would never have started or continued this journey.

Next year is going to be big, starting with the solo exhibition at Bundaberg Regional Gallery and my series of talks in schools… It’s going to a great experience!!

Cheers

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.
