"decompresso" (pen, watercolor, stain - 12”x12”)
This piece was created and sent to London for the 2014 Coffee Art Project. It’s a good program benefiting a good cause, check it out if you’re in the neighborhood. My statement for the piece:
Whether it’s hand-grinding beans for a pour over at home, or sitting down with my sketch book and a flat black at a coffee shop, the art of coffee is an art of decompression. Outside pressure gets pressed back with the slow drop of a french press. Stress gets crossed out with each pencil mark. With art and coffee, I try to focus on the process, and not worry about the result. It just feels better that way.
