Bunnies in Love, Lust and Longing is a series of small sculptures of anthropomorphised rabbits made from worn ladies gloves. The gloves (in leather, suede, cotton and synthetic materials) have been crafted to depict rabbits cuddling, hanging out, pleasuring themselves and each other. After years of functioning as polite accessories and protection against cold weather, these gloves now find themselves bringing to life little bunny relationships and experiences. Much of the way we understand and empathise with each other comes through non verbal communication. The Bunnies... use the intrinsic human practice of interpreting hand-gestures and body language to elicit empathy in the viewer, and to convey feelings of togetherness, hope, desire.
