This is an very interesting composition. Having not read an artist's statement about this I would say that I get a sad feeling from this. The plants on her skin seem to go with the idea that she is in her most natural state and fully exposed. This idea brings me to think that the rabbits are her inner thoughts, experiences, or characteristics that usually aren't exposed; the positioning tells me how they're typically hidden. The lightness of the colors give a mood of gentleness, but the one dark rabbit resting on her chest brings me to believe she either has some sort of secret, darkness that is weighing her down. The streaking of the background colors seems to hint at this same idea, as well as the expression she has on her face.
She has a strong look about her that tells me she can handle what she's been hiding, but the idea seems that she is sharing her deepest secret with someone intimately, where most people only see the lightly colored, gentle bunnies on the outside. She is more than she seems.
I'm not sure if that's where you were actually going with this piece, but that's what I get from it. Nice work.
