Statement: Jacquita Beddo has been called the jackrabbit lady. She is primarily a figurative sculptor because she feels like the human face creates a connection to the viewer like nothing else. Often, she adds jackrabbit ears to her figures. The stories of the desert southwest dub the jackrabbit as the listener and they are also painted as clever, quick, and seen to outsmart their adversaries. It is for these reasons she likes to reference the jackrabbit in her work.
