Rabbit - Art


Rabbit is a dark, abstract piece with an unusual, mysteriously gloomy mood. The color scheme in this intriguing piece is composed of a rich, deep burgundy shade and a dark charcoal. The dark, disturbing nature of the colors of this piece contrasts interestingly with the painting’s title. Though rabbits are often considered to be cuddly, sweet animals, this piece is more evocative of a frantic, delirious rabbit, disturbed by some terrible event or stimulus.

The dark colors of this piece create a frightening mood, in which terror seems to reign supreme over all other emotions. This is not unlike the experience that many rabbits have in nature, where predators, both human and animal, chase them with the intent to kill. This painting, instead of focusing on the cute and cuddly exterior of a pet rabbit, portrays the experience of a rabbit living in the wild, exposed to the dangerous world at large.
