Caroline Shotton

the persistence of moomory

When I was living in Kingston Upon Thames, I saw in an art shop a funny painting: the Gioconda with a cow shape. I though it was very funny, maybe because I like cows. Then I found out the artist was quite famous and that she was cowholic!

She took some famous paitings and she turned them into a cowish version, but she also did other works not binded to any famous name. So for example we can find The persistence of moomory (from Dalí), or The moo (from Munch), or The Smooch (from Klimt), and as I said before a cowish version of The Gioconda called Moona Lisa! I so wold like to have one!

But if you want to know more about Shotton´s history, here is a little Biography. And to see some of the cowholic paitings, click here.

Quando vivevo in Kingston Upon Thames, vidi in un negozio d´arte un quadro divertente: la Gioconda versione muccosa. L´ho trovato molto divertente, forse perché mi piaciono le mucche. Poi ho scoperto che l´artista era abbastanza famosa e che era pure lei pazza per mucche!

Ha dipinto alcuni pezzi famosi in versione muccosa, ma ha anche prodotto pezzi suoi. Non posso tradurre i titoli dall´Inglese all´Italiano, o non manterrebbero il gioco di parole (moo é mucca in Inglese, o meglio: come i bimbi chiamano la mucca. Tenero!). Ho riportato alcuni titoli nella sezione inglese!
