In this painting Rabbitwoman and Dogman are depicted sitting facing each other, holding a large fishbowl. Out of the fishbowl, a multitude of goldfish leap into the sky, creating a mesmerizing scene of freedom and possibility. The title evokes a sense of insignificance in the vastness of the world, highlighting the contrast between the smallness of individual lives and the expansive nature of the universe. The image symbolizes the transcendence of boundaries and the pursuit of dreams beyond the limitations imposed by society. It encourages viewers to embrace their own potential, to take risks, and to venture beyond their comfort zones in pursuit of personal growth and fulfillment. The painting serves as a reminder that even in a world filled with challenges and uncertainties, there is always room for exploration, transformation, and the realization of our true potential.

Artwork Features
The purest example of the artist’s freehand work, Gillie and Marc’s ‘Contemporary Line & Stencil Paintings’ are a stunning series that pairs unashamedly bold colors with deep black line work to form intimate moments featuring their signature alter egos, endangered wildlife and more. The carefully selected vivid colors and unmistakable imagery means no two pieces are alike and can have multiple meanings the more they are viewed. Gillie and Marc paint each unique canvas side-by-side ensuring love is engrained in every brushstroke of each one-of-a-kind work of art. Recently inspired by the pop style of Andy Warhol and the iconic stencils of street artists Banksy and Mr. Brainwash, Gillie and Marc expanded their collection with the edgy addition of using spray paint stencils on their canvases. The stark contrast of bright colors beneath a dark stencil breathes life into this limited series, embodying Gillie and Marc’s philosophy of the importance of accessible art by playfully bringing the street to the canvas.

Please note: All canvases come stretched and ready to hang, however if you would like your painting to be framed, Gillie and Marc are happy to provide this service for you at your request. For framing enquiries please email us.
