Blase Bird

Spring Hofeldt"s fascination with the offbeat characters of the animal kingdom casts these ostriches as your loveably awkward friends or favorite social critics. Against a bright green backdrop, Francine cocks her fuzzy head and offers a hint of a smile as if to say "you got this." Each ostrich portrait is printed using acid-free paper and presented under an acid-free mat and Bonanza wood frame. Made in the USA.

“The subjects I find usually already have a great character, contour, or story behind them. Then I consider how to shape them into a concept or metaphor.”

Spring Hofeldt may be a realistic painter, but she gravitates toward surreal forms. Case in point: ostriches. “I’m drawn to bizarre and quirky animals,” says the Brooklyn-based artist. “Ostriches have a very powerful presence, from their towering size and quick step, to their large, bold, deep black eyes that have a lock on your every move.” The wackier the subject, the closer it brings Spring to her goal: joy in the eye of the beholder. “I hope it makes them chuckle, giggle, snort, laugh out loud, or smile on the inside,” she says of her work. Playfulness, after all, is at the root of all enjoyment. “There are so many human experiences that can be annoying, awkward, or awful,” says Spring. “Retelling the story to others and seeing the humor in it is a great way to cope.”
