"Coffee:00 AM"

42cm x 59.4cm

This image represents the moment of the first morning coffee: A limbo space between sleep and waking life, almost out of reality. My head is misty and white, empty from the thoughts and concerns of the day that hasn’t quite begun. The coffee is at the centre of that moment, it’s the only that matters. For a lot of coffee drinkers it is a routine habit, a mundane thing- I wanted to highlight, bring to attention the pure beauty of this moment, and glorify this first coffee, to remind one it is a precious ritual, not a mere routine.
