Foreward by John Berend
Essay by Bruce Helander
This delightful book encompasses a lyrical and engaging body of work by artist Hunt Slonem. There are Bunnies abound and they seem to scatter all about, many leaping off the canvases and then some sitting and posing demurely like one Hunt would see sitting in his backyard when he was growing up in Kittery, Maine.
Mr. Slonem is a world renowned artist: a painter, printmaker, and sculptor who has exhibited in more than 350 galleries and museums worldwide. Some of these include The Solomon R, Guggenheim, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Many of his early works also included animals, birds and fish, painted in an abstract or an impressionistic way. There are many explanations in the book of the absorbing appeal that rabbits have for him, as well as children and other adults. I will let you discover these for yourself when you add this inspired book to your library!!
