‘The Hunted’ series consists of a group of four dream like sequences linked through underlying symbolism, myth and superstition associated with witches and the hare. Who is the hunter and who is the hunted? Witches were thought to be shape shifters manifested as hares, the hare was also believed to have been a bird that was saved when its wings were frozen and transformed into a hare by the goddess Eostre.
The element of fire and burning is consistent throughout; the burning of witches, the association of the hare predicting a fire and the amuletic power of fire to purify.
