Acquired by Woollahra Council for permanent display in Paddington, Sydney. This sculpture is installed on the corner of Glenmore Road and Cascade Street for all to enjoy.
Gillie and Marc believe art should be seen and enjoyed by as many people as possible. The artists also want their Dogman and Rabbitgirl characters to resonate with the community, and they’ve been successful at achieving this.
In 2011, Gillie and Marc jumped at the chance to be a part of Woollahra Council’s Public Art Program – an initiative for artists to give public spaces a creative makeover.
It Takes Two perfectly embodies the culture of Paddington, the Sydney Suburb a part of Woollahra council. “Paddington is an inner city urban community, where car parking is difficult and coffee shops are plentiful,” said Marc. “So our Dogman and Rabbitgirl are on a Vespa drinking a cappuccino. They represent the archetypal Paddington couple.” In fact, the portrayal is so spot-on that locals love to dress them up, while visitors enjoy getting their photo taken with the creative couple.
