Rabbit is from a series of paintings called, You Look Surprised To See Me. It speaks of the adult need to return to childhood and converse visually with those inanimate friends that were present when the child was hurting.
Peisley's work has been about the intimate process of reaching the surface with images of a reclaimed self.
Peisley studied at the Bath Academy of Art and received a BA with honors in painting. She then went to Birmingham Polytechnic to receive a Masters Post-Graduate degree in fine art painting. She has exhibited nationally since 1987, most recently in, With Your Own Face On.
