Simple Stated: The Elephant-ant farm detail

The Elephant was part of a series I called ‘Simply Stated. ‘Each piece in the series was “powered” by what I called a “plug,” often a found object that crystalized what I was trying to say with the grand art work. This is the live ant farm at the center of The Elephant. In retrospect, the connection between the “plug” and the total artwork was never as simple as the series title indicated.
