Richard: Coffee & Pigment Series

I drink too much coffee.
Way too much, in fact for someone who claims to be sensitive to caffeine.
(on a side note; I'm probably not really senseitive to caffeine)

For this show, I was looking for a way to visually quantify my coffee consumption in a way that a pie-chart just couldn’t do. So I combined my love for the aesthetics of a good stain with my love for coffee, and ended up saving half of my morning coffee and pouring it on a canvas.

I really liked where it was going, so I started adding raw pigments to my left over coffee.

These are great, I want one for my house. I will be at the show and looking forward to spending every nickel and penny I have on these excellent pieces of time.
