Kelly Hood | Cows In The Hood

Opening Reception: Friday 6th October, 7 – 9pm

Kelly Hood showcases her new collection of cows on canvas. While Ireland has had its fair share of sacred cows in recent times, the spiritual nature of cattle and their aesthetic beauty is now captured on canvas in a unique solo show by artist Kelly Hood. In this show she draws out the individual characteristics of her bovine subjects to humorous, affectionate and dramatic effect.

Hood investigates; The Good and the Bad & Ugly behind “Selfie” Culture. “Selfie” is defined as a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically taken with a smartphone and shared via social media.

Opinions surrounding selfies have always been divided. Some believe that taking selfies can be harmful as it could promote narcissism, unrealistic physical expectations, and eventual comparisons. Others believe that selfies can empower, as we are able to freely express ourselves.

I decided to explore this phenomenon further and invited the herd on a Tour of Ireland, Inviting them to #mooselfie. We hope to welcome you aboard this tour & look forward to showing you the best of our little green island.
