Opening in Alexandria, right next door to their gallery, Gillie and Marc believe that a cup of their coffee could change the world – go try it.
So we’ve been fans of Gillie and Marc for a while now, collecting pieces of their artworks that have caught our eye over the years. But for those of you that don’t know the name, you’ll definitely know their work.
Their monumental sculptures are featured all over the globe in New York, London, Shanghai, Hong Kong and of course – Sydney. Remember Sculpture by the Sea’s Buried Rhino on Tamarama Beach or the iconic Marilyn Monroe Rabbitgirl being photographed by a paparazzi dog in Westfield Bondi Junction? Well both of those are their work.
Gillie and Marc are living proof that anything is possible through love, and that’s the message they want to tell the world through their art. Working side-by-side for over 25-years, this husband and wife team create art as one.
On paper, their differences should have been incompatibilities, but their hearts said something else… and seven days after meeting, they were married in the foothills of Mount Everest.
Their beloved hybrid characters – Rabbitgirl and Dogman – tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soulmates.
Gillie and Marc are most well known for their hybrid characters Dogman and Rabbitgirl symbolizing the acceptance of all people as one. As unlikely animal kingdom companions, the Rabbit and Dog represent diversity and togetherness through love.
Rabbitgirl and Dogman have a dream. They have a dream that coffee can break down barriers, that all creatures, regardless of race, religion, or orientation can have a safe place to relax and never be judged. They have a dream that open hearts, and open minds can come together in the world’s most loving cafe!
