Are You My Mother?

Spring Hofeldt's studies of the offbeat characters of the animal kingdom cast a trio of hungry goldfish in place of Robin hatchlings, with a mother Robin offering surrogate worm service. Despite Hofeldt's deft naturalism, you're not likely to find this quaint combination in nature. Each print is produced using acid-free paper and presented under an acid-free mat and Bonanza wood frame. Designed in Brooklyn, New York. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

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.”
