An Elementary Meal; Still Life with Bread and Milk
24cm x 11cm x 9cm
The sculpture of the loaf of bread is a cast and painted aluminum shell that weighs somewhere around 3/4 lbs; the paint used cost approximately $0.60. The amount of acrylic paint I mixed into the water to create the ‘milk’ ended up costing about $0.20. The total material cost of the sculpture was less than $2.00, cheaper than the cost of a loaf of bread and a glass of milk in the 2012 market.
