Just who doesn’t automatically think of country singer, Tammy Wynette whenever the words, ‘Stand, By, Your’ and ‘Man’ spring up in conversation/juxtaposed in THAT precise order on the screen?! It’s a given. However henceforth whenever you’re confronted with the self-same words it’s hoped your mind wanders to thoughts of celebrated contemporary animal humour artist, Caroline Shotton instead. Not sure whether she can belt out a tune a la Wynette, but what she can (evidently) do, and has been mooooing, sorry, doing for quite a while now is producing stunning illustrative works such as this.
‘Stand by Your Man’ is the brand new Autumn 2015 giclee on boxed canvas release by the best-selling Shotton, which comes bearing her signature as part of just 150 limited edition pieces now available. Her favourite, loved-up bovines remain at the graphic heart of her very visual thoughts and compositional deeds, and presented here and now in this 40” x 30” pictorial guise there’s no doubting that staring back from your wallspace Shotton’s latest reveal would blow any audience away.
