When I came to create the Half Figure Rabbit, I thought of a sculpture that was instantaneously classic and modern, funny and curious, fluffy yet substantial. I wanted it to have a deep-rooted presence, but one that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The choice of rabbit and marble captures it all. The rabbit’s fidgety nature summons childish reactions. The marble speaks of the maturity of nature itself, of layers and layers of hidden truths. It comes in massive blocks and you have no idea what’s hiding inside. With marble, nature’s saying is very present; you have to show humility and share the spotlight.
Corresponds with classic sculpturing, in essence, not in form. It’s this juxtaposition of contradictions that makes every piece unique; they look the same from afar, but they’re not.
These contradictions of form and essence make this piece timeless.
Though look identical from afar, each piece is unique, unlike the others.
