Bunnymen in a Lake.

Bunnymen in a Lake

Field review by the editors.

Auburn, Alabama

Artist Alex Podesta has made a career of making full-color statues of his bearded self -- always in sets of two -- wearing white bunny costumes. In this set, "Self-Portrait as Bunnies (The Bathers)," the two men face each other half-submerged in a lake outside an art museum.

There's an old saying that art is what can't be expressed in words. Alex's artist statement for Bunnies seems to confirm this. "Who is this god dude?" he wrote. "And is he a hero? Like Superman? Or soldiers? Or knights on horseback? And what does hero mean anyway?"
