Rabbit Fish: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

"Rabbit Fish" is a conceptual, symbolic artwork that challenges the viewer's perception, presenting an ambiguous creature that seems to share features blended from a rabbit and a fish. The deliberate ambiguity encourages the viewer to explore various interpretations, each open to personal introspection and contemplation.

The creature at the centre of the artwork embodies a fusion of two disparate species, blurring the lines between land and sea, mammal and aquatic life. The conceptual title, "Rabbit Fish," evokes curiosity. The artwork may suggest themes of adaptation, hybridisation, and the interrelatedness of all living beings, inviting contemplation on the diversity life can take and the interconnected nature of physical existence.

Additionally, the image may take the reader into the realm of ethical considerations surrounding genetic engineering and mutation.

In this context “Rabbit Fish” could serve as a metaphor for the potential consequences and ethical dilemmas associated with manipulating the building blocks of life, raising questions about the boundaries between nature and scientific innovation.
