"Coffee and the paper"
Brown ink and coffee on paper
29 x 20 cm

This piece reflects the personal experience of an individual relaxing and immersed in their own thoughts, while taking a coffee break. The sitter contemplates events, reminiscing past times, while in the background radio-sounds are transmitted.
Jon has become skilled in the use of single-coloured, water-based dyes, investigating their reaction with chemical agents on paper. Jon feels this project is a great opportunity to use the different medium of coffee as a stainer.
