Anyone who knows me well knows that I need to be appropriately caffeinated with two cups each and every day or I don't function. So it's quite an appropriate exhibition for me! I thought long and hard about what I would make in response to such a ritualised addiction in my life and came up with a response to beginnings, thoughts and conversation. An opportunity to do some painting - a place to start and make some simple threaded work as a response - a string of thoughts. Here are the pieces:
A place to start.
The beginning of the day.
The beginning of a friendship.
The beginning of an idea, a thing.
A string of thoughts.
Fuel for making.
