Claes Oldenburg reconstructs ordinary objects in exaggerated scale and with unexpected materials that defy the nature of the original thing. Teabag includes a large piece of Plexiglas—a hard, industrial material—molded into the shape of a teabag, an object that in reality is small and soft. The sly, humorous tone of Oldenberg's imagery was an antidote to the seriousness of traditional still-life compositions.
