Tea and Coffee
While coming up with concepts and ideas for an exhibition entitled 'Stand and Stare' I realised I often stand and stare at the world with a tea in hand.
Before my chronic fatigue diagnosis the only time I'd ever stop to stand and stare would be, for example, on a mountain top. This would always involve Mike with a coffee and me with a tea.
Having experimented with natural dyes I decided to create a series using tea and coffee, our beverages of choice when stopping to stand and stare.
I use tea for the sky and water because it's lighter and naturally more fluid. Coffee is used for the ground (pun intended). It's richer and you get texture from the coffee grounds.
