Coffee Friends (Bronze Sculpture)
These coffee drinker friends are a show stopper sure to draw eyes in any indoor or outdoor space, warmly reminding viewers of their first morning coffee. A beloved motif in Gillie and Marc’s art, coffee warms the body and soul. This relatable artwork does the same with its uniqueness, beauty.
The Friendship Bench (Bronze Sculpture)
‘The Friendship Bench’ is not only a functional bench, but also an interactive contemporary sculpture from world-renowned public artists, Gillie and Marc. Incorporating their iconic characters Rabbitwoman and Dogman, you are invited to take a seat between them, inspiring conversations between friends, family, and even strangers! Rabbitwoman and Dogman tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soul mates. As unlikely animal kingdom companions, the Rabbit and the Dog stand for diversity and acceptance through love.
‘The Friendship Bench’ is a way of celebrating these differences rather than retreating in fear and division. Through ‘The Friendship Bench’, you are given the
opportunity to take a moment and open yourself up to another with love and friendship, two of the most important things in the world. ‘The Friendship Bench’ is the chance to become Rabbitwoman and Dogman's friends, to make new friends, or just to take a photo to remember friendships.
Tandem Lovers (Bronze Sculpture)
Tandem Lovers’ takes you on a biking adventure with Gillie and Marc’s iconic characters, Rabbitwoman and Dogman.
Since they met while travelling, adventure and exploring have been a huge inspiration in their work. They love to go biking so they can travel while being environmentally conscious at the same time. Tandem is their favourite as they have to work as one, which is how they work best.
With a seat on the back of the bike, this sculpture is interactive, allowing the public to jump on and be part of Rabbitwoman and Dogman’s next adventure.
This amazing sculpture has been installed in major cities across the world to show love and acceptance and is part of the ‘Travel Everywhere With Love’ project.
They would swim until they couldn't stop (Bronze Sculpture)
Whenever Rabbitwoman and Dogman found a body of water they had a great competition. Who could make the biggest splash! It was so much fun. One would launch themselves off diving boards, rocks, or the branches of trees while the other would relax in the water and judge. Every time they would leave the water soaking wet and with huge smiles on their faces. It was always best to make a splash.
Paparazzi Pack - Benjamin (Bronze Sculpture)
Gillie and Marc’s Paparazzi Dogs are the world’s most notorious photographers. The four bronze Dogmen have sniffed out the rich and famous in Melbourne’s Federation Square, Woolloomooloo Wharf in Sydney, the Jing’an Sculpture Park in Shanghai, outside Raffles City Shops in Singpore, and New York’s Brooklyn and Greenwich Village. The sculptures have gone from being an art experiment about photographing celebrities to sought-after celebrities in their own right. When Gillie and Marc first launched the series, within days the life-sized dogs went viral with millions of visitors coming to see them. People from all over the world, along with celebrities such as Snoop Dog, were eager to pose with the Pap Dogs, quickly giving them a celebrity status. Trey Ratcliff, considered to be one of the world’s best contemporary photographers, also came and was followed by 500 professional photographers to take a photo of him Gillie and Marc had intentionally created the interactive piece to expose the pack mentality of the media and how we hunt celebrities to get their photo. “Trey is a celebrity in his own right,” explained Marc. “So it’s amazing that we finally have a photograph of life imitating art. It summed up everything the sculpture was intended to say.”
