Tense Jackrabbit / Willard Stone

Gallery Label

These rabbits watch you like a hawk, their eyes are camouflaged, but the minute they see you raise your rifle, they’re gone like a flash. I shot rabbits and squirrels to put meat on the table. This shows the tense rabbit waiting for you to pass on by and not see him.

From the exhibition: Willard Stone: Following the Grain, 2016.
