"Dripping Strata"

Original Coffee Abstraction painting


Often amidst life's rough experiences it is hard to feel the solid ground we knew was there when times were peaceful. It's in those storms that we need to gaze intently; looking through and past the torrents of rain and focus on our solid foundations.


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 120 cups of coffee produced from 4 lbs of thrown out coffee beans.) Once dried, sections of the painting were soaked in water then worked with a pallet knife and splashed with liquid coffee.
