Masked Bunny Sculptures
Artwork by Darla Jackson is Darkly Endearing

These Darla Jackson animal sculptures are deeply emotional.

The Philadelphia-based artist comments on her work, “My sculpture is an exploration of the human psyche in which I strive to show duality of emotions.” To achieve this complex expression of emotion, the artist combines and juxtaposes identifiable objects with more abstract ideas. There is a heavy use of symbolism. The bunny rabbit is generally thought of as a coy, shy animal. When masked with an edgy, fear-inducing mask, the message becomes intensely different. Cute aesthetics mixed with dark accessories and harsh body language causes a strong curiosity and sense of mystery.

The bunnies are featured wearing crow masks or bandaging. With such suggestive titles as ‘It Started at a Young Age’ and ‘What Are you Afraid Of,’ the series of gypsum cement bunnies is mournfully nostalgic and bittersweet.
