A revelation of the Rabbit

The Artists' Association of Lapland's artist of the July is Sylvilagus with the exhibition "The Revelation of the Rabbit". 

Sylvilagus researches rabbits on the paintings by different ways. The intension of working is to create an illustration with this subject. For Sylvilagus a rabbit is a similar almighty symbol as a cow to the Finnish sculptor Miina Äkkijyrkkä. Rabbits revelate to canvas, they are not copied or scetched, the method of working is intuitiv. As the Finnish painter Helene Schjerfbeck said: "Nothing is too trivial to be painted."
