Catalogue Note

"Thematically the choice of the hare is quite a rich and expressive sort of model; the conventions of the cartoon and the investment of human attributes into the animal world is a very well practiced devise...and is really quite poignant. The ears, for instance, are really able to convey far more than a squint in an eye of a figure, or a grimace on the face of a model." - Barry Flanagan
