‘Love Rabbit – Birds’ is a signed limited edition silkscreen By contemporary artist Penelope Kenny. The piece is printed with hand-made water based inks from ground pure pigments and metallic powders on 300gsm Fabriano 5 Paper.
‘Love Rabbit – Birds’ features two Resplendent Rabbit-Birds of Paradise one pink and one blue facing each other on a flowering branch. They are a combination of a rabbits head with the body and ling tail of a bird of paradise. Their positioning suggests the shape of a heart creating a delicate and romantic atmosphere.
Penelope Kelly explores the animal world through a magic realist lens in her bewitching prints. Fascinated by evolutionary processes and the effect of genetic manipulation technologies, Kelly’s prints are part Darwin-esque illustration, part surrealist fantasy, for a stimulating and compelling aesthetic.
