Oil paint on canvas with a resin surface
60 x 60 (cm)

The magic of a coffee machine, it’s glossy paintwork like that of a classic car, the violent hissing sounds omitted from it’s bowls, the intoxicating smells. I wanted to capture the magic, heat and dynamism of coffee being made in paint, from the eruption an act of creation as a perfect coffee is born.
