Intrude by Australian artist Amanda Parer consists of five giant illuminated inflatable rabbits, measuring up to 7 meters high. The name of the piece indicates a deeper layer of meaning beyond the innocent bunny facade.
Australian artist Amanda Parer’s edgy and ephemeral art works explore the natural world, its fragility and our role within it. With startlingly beautiful creatures enlarged and frozen within their chosen habitats. When viewing one of these iconic, mostly feral animals inhabiting a beautifully haunting landscape, the environmental message is enhanced by the artist’s finely crafted traditional technique in any of her chosen mediums such as painting, sculpture and public installation. Parer is an artist originally from Sydney but now resides in Tasmania where her work has been acquired by both public and private collections. She has been selected for notable national competitions including five times for the Blake Prize, as well as for the Glover Prize in 2008, 2012 & 2013.
