Oil on Canvas


'Pink Pink' Oil on canvas, 100x100cm

Artist's comment:

'The young ‘Pink Pink’ calf is one of the Ellis herd at Church Farm and would often graze with her mother within full view of my studio, on the riverbank of the Cuckmere. She subsequently made her appearance in my temporary home studio during the lockdown. During the heatwave the paint went on super smoothly, like spreading butter on warm toast.  

Her surprised look is mainly due to my mooing at her. I've heard that if you moo at a cow then they’ll moo back - current success rate:  zero moo responses, really - not one reply. Yet...'

John achieved overnight success in the 90’s for his bold paintings of cows; a subject which has remained his single focus ever since and earned him international recognition as ‘the cow man’. Light is often used to accentuate composition and backgrounds are ever changing. His fresh approach to each work has established a growing collection of powerful work. John has exhibited widely throughout the UK and internationally.

This painting is framed in a bespoke wooden wooden frame. Please allow approx 6.5cm to each side of the 100x100cm canvas size.
