Bread Frog Making a Pig of Himself The eccentric Gilhooly makes a series of work dedicated to the character of bread frog, seeking to ‘break out’ of fated roles (whatever that might be for the frog is never fully clear, other than to be eaten) and reassume identity. Here the bread frog becomes gluttonous pig,  grotesquely greedy — actually assuming the identity through a glossy piglike mask. Gilhooly’s sculpting of clay is consistently delightful in its oddity and personable realisation, such bright use of colour through application of acrylic varnish giving the piece a novelty and eye-catching attraction. http://hieronymusobjects.com/content/images/thumbs/0018864_bread-frog-making-a-pig-of-himself_1.jpeg David Gilhooly
