Thirsty Elephant in the Room

2014 Acrylic on canvas paper, 16" x 22" This was part of a quick still life assignment that I had the liberty to set up. I wanted to create a relationship between the three objects I chose. By orienting the elephant’s trunk towards the mug, I wanted to emphasize the size difference in a comedic way. Furthermore, through the title I wanted to also make a play on the size difference since the elephant in the work is actually the smallest object present.
