EMILY ALLSOPP- FROM PADDOCK TO PLATE
Sheep are funny, silly, inquisitive, and charismatic, they have beseeching eyes, a defiant stance and a habit of following other sheep. Plus they baa.
After a time this quirky sheep ends up on your table as your Sunday roast, your lamb cutlets on the BBQ, or kebabs from the take out shop, or if you’re lucky on your feet as Ugg boots, or in a knitted jumper or beanie that is good for the sheep as well as ourselves.
This exhibition is about the elegance of the sheep, what most people don’t seem to notice, or don’t care to notice.
Sheep being individuals who have personalities, thoughts and feelings.
