They are the Australian creative couple whose whimsical sculptures and art can be found inss more than 2050 cities worldwide.
And on Friday, Gille and Marc were in Port Stephens to officially unveil their latest piece of public art at Soldiers Point Marina.
The bronze sculpture depicts Rabbit Woman and Dogman – human-sized creations that feature prominently in Gillie and Marcs’s work, holding cups of tea and sitting atop a bright red scooter.
The sculpture is the second Gillie and Marc creation to feature in the marina’s sculpture walk and guest services manager Carmen Holden said it was definitely a worthy addition.
“Everything that Gillie and Marc represent is wonderfully aligned with the ethos of Soldiers Point Marina,” she said.
“We are very excited to be adding another of their unique and deeply moving creations to our sculpture walk and thrilled that they can be here to share some insights to their awesome work with our local community.”
Embraced by critics and communities everywhere, Gillie and Marc have won the People’s Choice Award in Sydney’s Sculpture by the Sea, two years in a row. They are Archibald Prize Finalists and winners of the Chianciano Biennale in Italy.
They are best known for their beloved Rabbit Woman and Dogman who tell the autobiographical tale of two opposites coming together to become best friends and soulmates.
Gillie and Marc’s work can also be found in Newcastle, with their Paparazzi Dog sculpture taking pride of place in front of the Telstra building on Hunter Street.
