'green tea'. 12x12 inches. oil on panel. 2017. SOLD. Collection of Kris Caffo.
This painting is a teaser for an upcoming series based on the stains found on used green tea bags. Once the tea bags have been used and dried, I unfold them and empty out their leaves. The colors, patterns, and shapes of the stains and folds in the paper bags are then abstracted in 12x12 inch oil paintings. I am interested in the unexpected compositions of naturally-forming images; such as the layers of sediment that build up in stains, or the random-but-balanced way that debris arranges itself on the sidewalk. Images like these dictate that art is a world contained in a bigger universe than ours. That universe itself can create art, whether or not its materials are self-aware.
