PAINTINGS      SPECIAL PROJECTS    COFFEE

 

The painting “Coffee” was an order from a coffee company, meant to hang in the stairway of the building. The size of the square painting with frame is 270 x 270 centimeters.

 

One of the things they do at the coffee factory, is to taste the quality of all different kind of blends and roasts.  The tasting (cupping) is similar to the tasting of wine: you swirl the coffee in the cup, like you swirl the wine in the glass and you smell. Whit the swirling of the coffee in the cup, about 700 different aromas will be released and form the fragrance.

 

The painting is the abstract depiction of the circles of coffee in the cup, while swirling the coffee to smell the aromas. The colors are the representation of the 700 different aromas that will set free wile swirling the coffee.
