DENVER, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Who are the next generation of great artists and innovators? A new journal from independent publisher Big Bad Bettie Press may provide the answer for collectors – and a healthy dose of inspiration for art lovers everywhere.
Just released, Rabbit Rabbit is an annual curated journal packed with 100 pages of exclusive content from 21 of the most talented emerging photographers, painters, sculptors, and writers working around the globe. A limited quantity of 500 copies is available for purchase at bigbadbettiepress.com for $40 each.
Among those featured are Natalie Krick (Seattle, WA), a photographer who makes bold, colorful portraits that mimic cliché images of sexuality and beauty in popular culture; Anna Rose (Florence, Italy), a fiber artist who sews bizarre and beautiful costumes made of synthetic hair; Ileana Tejada (San Francisco), a Mexican-American artist whose larger-than-life charcoal drawings of herself cradling men examine female masculinity; and Rachelle Bussieres (San Francisco), whose abstract pieces blur the lines of photography, painting, and sculpture to explore the intersection of time and the natural world.
Katie Harwood, Editor and Co-Curator of Rabbit Rabbit and Founder of Big Bad Bettie Press, says that what sets this journal apart "is our unique mash-up of new talent from both sides of the aisle - artists & innovators. For example, we have photographers right alongside the work of a psychologist."
Intended as a collectible, "portable exhibition," Rabbit Rabbit is printed on high-quality paper with a soft-touch cover, giving it a luxurious look and feel for its compact size of 8.5" x 5.5".
"Rabbit Rabbit is a high-quality, curated platform made exclusively for emerging artists to publish their work," Harwood said.
The theme of the first volume is "Transition" – a subject that resonates personally with Harwood and co-curator Stephanie A. Lindsey, who both received MFAs from The San Francisco Institute of Art in 2015 and 2006 respectively.
"Personally I found the transition from graduate school to the 'real' world exciting, scary, and exhausting all at once," Harwood said. Curious about the experience of other recent graduates, Harwood and Lindsey scoured their networks to identify other artists with advanced degrees to respond with their own stories of transition.
"The responses we got back were incredible -- essays, artworks, photographs, interviews, a poem… there is something for everyone. Whether you're a collector, an emerging artist, or someone who simply enjoys artistic excellence, I can promise Rabbit Rabbit will delight, entertain, and inspire."
