"Nature morte, Memory and Coffee"
40cm x 60cm

Three years ago my lover wrote these few words about coffee and love on the back of an envelope, in the morning, before he went to work. I don’t know why, but I have kept this paper until today. We were not used to drinking a coffee together, but I have always had the feeling that he was close to me when I had my breakfast. Even if he was absent every morning, his cup and coffee stains on the table, were a material sign of his presence. It made me feel good, happy, and in love.
