About The Artist

For Gillie and Marc Schattner, it was love at first sight. Having met on a photoshoot in Hong Kong, the two were married within seven days, and have been together for 20 years. Discovering that they had similar styles of artistic expression that intermingled over course of their years together, the couple decided to create a piece together in tribute to a mutual friend. What followed was an artistic and autobiographical journey that radiated not only innovation and creativity but also the warmth and affection between the artists themselves.

The art of Gillie and Marc is often a tribute to the relationship between animals and man. Depicting human-animal hybrids and their interactions with other animals, they comment on the connection between the two and how neither is totally bereft of the other. The animals are also autobiographical, with the dog representing Marc and the rabbit representing Gillie - two animals that are completely different and unlikely life partners but who are in love and exist happily together. The differences and bizarre appearances of their subjects are also a metaphor for the differences that exist within culture, religion, race and humanity. The reaction of audiences to these subjects - laughter and endearment - are to the artists symbols of humanity's capability to look past differences, realize inner beauty and appreciate ideals beyond the superficial. The stances depicted are often reflective of the couple themselves, but also embody the universal thirst for fun, adventure and the pure joy of the perfect companion by your side.
