"Perhaps it was the rabbits that inhabited his childhood yard in Kittery, Maine, that made an indelible impression on the artist and now manifests itself in his illustrious career ... The use of a bunny as a subject has a distinct and delightful charm of its own. Slonem takes a cue from a bunny's soft and independent character, usually one at a time in a portrait that convincingly accommodates tall, unruly ears and some long whiskers to boot. His are a line-up of fuzzy likenesses that are created quickly and forcefully with a clear sense of compassion and precision even though they are purposefully abstract.                       – Bruce Helander; From the Introduction to Bunnies For the first time, Hunt Slonem's work appears as a collection in Bunnies, a remarkable ode to one of nature's most beloved and mythical creatures--the rabbit--who not only appears center stage in many children's fairy tales, stories, and Easter memories, but is also prominent in the Chinese zodiac.  Bunnies contains a treasury of enchanting paintings that are at once pop-culture and fine art. With more than 200 four-color and black-and-white images, this unique compendium by a globally-acclaimed artist is at once exciting, unexpected, realistic, and abstract--sure to delight art connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.
