Durer Hare

This is my version of the famous painting produced by German artist Albrecht Dürer in 1502 of the hare, which is much loved to this day.

I have produced this version as an ode to Dürer.  My painting is made out of the word Durer repeated over and over again to create shading.

I have been observing the hare for many years. In one of my photographs of the hare, I found that I had taken a snapshot of the hare at the same angle as Dürer’s painting, however, my hare was standing.  I wanted to use the Dürer hare in one of my paintings, so used the photo of my standing hare and recreated it crouching in similar fashion.

This style of repeating words was launched in 2014 with Hare Kin.  This is my second hare painting using this concept.

    Joanna,Uncanny. I was just wading thogruh some resistance here ( my own), some un-sureness about this very thing. I am shaking my head slowly and smiling how does she do this? Put just the right thing before me.I saw Napoleon’s bee embroidered velvet slippers and some ribboned and jeweled medals he wore upon his chest in an exhibit in Mobile a few years ago. And I saw Josephine’s combs in New Orleans in a companion exhibit. Of all the things, great paintings, furniture, marble busts, that I loved in both places, those small things stay with me. The slippers, the combs, those few small but exquisite medals. Human scale, things they touched each day.Details that made them what more real perhaps?
