"Glass Rabbit" - 18" x 24", oil on canvas (large image)
In August 2018 I participated in an auction to benefit the AIDS Action Committee in Boston, MA.
Being a charity for the AIDS Action Committee, I created a short series of work reusing the shape of a rabbit from a piece that I had done in May. I wanted to create within the shape (and in contrast to the condition) a healthy, lush, beautiful inner-system with the rabbit as the host.
The first image was the most challenging of all of my execution concepts, the aqua-glass terrarium. The deadline was thankfully extended, which gave me time to experiment with the other methods. The second method attempts a more abstract approach to the same idea of the vibrant interior and the third, more simplified, floral vascular system shows the same concept in a much more deliberate arrangement.
