NEOPETS – Bunny is a Sculptor


Posted 2 weeks ago in Arts & Culture Features

Taking inspiration from online gaming and digital identities from her youth, Bunny Rogers’ towering bronze sculptures bear resemblance to ornate European gargoyles but are brilliantly modernised in her whimsical and bold artistic style.

The NEOPETS exhibition sets up shop in the city over the coming weeks with thanks to the Form Foundation who are also aiding Arthur Jafa’s to the Douglas Hyde Gallery down the street and have a stated aim to, “introduce internationally recognised painting, sculpture and installation art to local audiences that is accessible to everyone.”

Rogers’ first forays into art can be traced to her experiments on the website Neopets.com: an immersive online universe popular in the early 2000s in which children created and tended to virtual pets.

“My Neopets were real to me,” Rogers explains, “I wished that I could visit Neopia and didn’t understand why I couldn’t.”
