Title: Another holey cow (CPESA 3010)
Location: Private owner, Johannesburg
Artist: Gordon Froud

Another Holey Cow has been pieced with holes and some of the holes have been filled with halogen bulbs. The bulbs emit rays of light and contrast with the holes that are not illuminated and therefore look black. This cow is a play on the “black hole” and the black spots create a play between holes filled with colour and the actual empty holes. It is also a pun on Holy, and the search for light in the darkness.

This cow was sold by Stephan Welz in association with Sotheby's auction on Wednesday 29 June 2005 at the Nedbank Head Office, 135 Rivonia Road, Sandton. Proceeds have gone to CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation to aid their plight in "Keeping more than Hope Alive". Please read the Auction press release should you want more information about the auction.
