Artprize Winner from 2012- Elephants

 This huge three paneled piece was displayed in one of the first buildings we visited to get our map.  It said it was done with graphite pencil and "an old sock".  It's a huge piece which a person who was speaking about it said that the artist worked on it while it was being looked at last year and as she worked and added more, she started drawing more and more and even off the paper onto the wall!  The video showed how they were cutting out the walls and removing even the metal studs to save her work!  You can see the tree extends over the elephant!  The detail and the dark and light values make it so beautiful.

If you google Artprize you can read more about this event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
