Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas

This work was a bit of a statement by myself to the attitude of artworks in my area. I live in a rural town and was always annoyed that people would ask me why i dont paint ‘lovely landscapes’ and ‘paintings of horses and cows – people around here love that stuff….’ CRINGE!
So at our local art awards i decided to do ‘the cow’ but i wanted to add the politics. Yep the cow looks like it is soulful… but around here cows are business and they make you money and we dont give a rats arse if you are selling them for meat or in this case export.
So I just injected abit of text to help people think about it.
The funny thing about it is that it won first prize at the awards.. and all the comments were like ‘oh we love the cow… he’s so cute’ and similiar comments and i just shook my head on the inside. Don’t think they got it!
