Here is the statement from her website, describing this artwork, and the show it was in….
Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful (A parody on life and what we admire)
We have all looked at art, at popular icons or concepts of beauty and have questioned why and how we have come to select certain subjects as admirable, beautiful, desirable, etc. Judith Kindler takes on this question in this body of work “Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful.”
Playing with and referencing our culture, art and its icons, the artist brings new meanings through parody, humor, re-contextualizing, and satire. In the three-dimensional work Kindler plays with the rabbit as symbol of what it is that we desire. Around the world the rabbit is symbolic for numerous things from sexuality, fertility, abundance, to wealth, and good fortune. Also known as the trickster, the rabbit typifies the “parody” aspect of the photography of “Don’t Hate me Because I’m Beautiful” The mixed media work plays with the psychological overtones of the imagery typical of the artist’s oeuvre.
