Original Coffee & Tees Abstraction painting


Inspired by the texture and weave of burlap coffee bags drawing parallels between all of life's woven experiences; blessed and cursed, uplifting and tragic, fun and scary all crafted together to form our individual characters.


Discarded, expired coffee, no longer viable for consumption was brewed and reduced down to a dark resin and applied to canvas. (This painting contains approximately 60 cups of coffee produced from 2 lbs of thrown out coffee beans.) Once dried, old t-shirts were soaked in water then systematically placed upon and removed from the canvas to form the intricate patterns and textures.
