Miffy + friends: The usual suspects

Brian Robinson

$7,700.00

Brian Robinson’s Miffy + friends: The usual suspects is rife with anecdotal and pop cultural references and dipictions of rabbits. Robinson says of the work “it takes the viewer on a magical journey through many different lands, several universes and a diversity of narratives as each and every character is explored leaving you to ponder . . . should I take the red pill or the blue pill? You take the blue pill . . . the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill . . . you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” In this print, Miffy is surrounded by his posse of family and friends, every conceivable long-eared rabbit that has appeared in written and illustrated literature to moving picture and arcade games as well as a few additions. Numerous epic narratives unfold in Miffy’s universe, once peaceful and placid, but now full of chaos and mayhem. The rabbit has long been a symbol of colonisation and Eurpoean invasion of so called Australia. Miffy + friends: The usual suspects is one of 51 works selected as finalists in the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award. Printed by Theo Trembley.
