Dairy Cow (132cm x 132cm) is made up of thousands of used garment labels; each label is attached to the canvas using dressmaking pins. Dairy Cow has attracted much attention and won a major prize. The piece has been described as ‘an extravagant rescue of waste’ that overwhelms the viewer by the sheer mass of used garment fragments. Clothes labels assembled in the image of a Dairy Cow not only offer the viewer a strong sense of community, but also reflect on the high value we place on dairy products.
