Elephant in the (Tea) Room

The work of painter Spring Hofeldt celebrates two things: play and the everyday. Here, Hofeldt's near-photorealist touch shines in her depiction of a blue ceramic creamer, while her jocular spirit comes forward in the bright red elephant's trunk that springs from it. Paired with a punny, inspiring title (because elephants never forget, of course), this charming print makes for an eye-catching, chuckle-inducing addition to any wall. Available framed or unframed. Designed in Brooklyn, New York. Printed and framed in Oregon.

Also new to the collection from Spring Hofeldt are Listen Up, Take Your Time, and Stay Sharp.

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.”
