Hello all, I just wanted to introduce you to my new friend Steve Coffin. I am super excited that Studio & Boutique Peaberry will be showcasing his new collection “Stirring the Brew” at the end of the month.
Stirring the Brew
Coffee Art Series – by Steve Coffin
“This series is an exploration of a new way of painting for me. It came about as an experiment to make some aged paper for an Artist friend and then it expanded into some of my most favourite canvas pieces.
The Coffee has a really rich colour and a stillness like a moment in a Café. It invites you in and allows me to explore many subjects from figurative to landscapes.
The Coffee, by nature, is a very wet and unpredictable medium. And as much as the Artist likes to think that they are in control sometimes the paintings paint themselves.
The Coffee keeps you awake, much like the caffeine when you drink it, and you just follow to see where you end up. Over time the piece develops and then the Art appears.
As an Artist this has been a lesson in letting go and flowing. The Coffee no matter hard you try does not respect your boundaries and it goes where it wants. So sit down in the Café, have a Coffee and see where it takes you….”
