  • “The rabbit has a fragile appearance and few expressions on his face. You sympathise with him and therefore identify with him and let him lead you into his world, which is the painting. In the picture, he is both the protagonist and the supporting role; sometimes subjective and sometimes on the sidelines. You are worried about his weakness when he is in the sea and the dark night, and afraid that he will be lost; but sometimes frightened by his unpleasant attitude, ‘Why not? Why Not Bunnies?’” — Huang Benrei
