Art From A Mistake: My Oven-Top Coffee Paintings

What I care to acknowledge about this body of work is the idea of making art from a mistake, as a spill of coffee on the stove could be experienced like. The alchemy of this process is to bring meaning and purpose to something that apparently went wrong.

On the other hand it also proposes the factor of resourcefulness into the art discussion, something which is becoming more popular these days, as well as the glorification of impermanence (and this applies to my coffee spills) as the artwork created on various kitchen surfaces is documented and later washed away.

Coffee spill on a stove. The entire mocha was spilled on the stove. It gave me a lot of material to work with.

Goes to show beauty can be found anywhere in anything if you look hard enough.

Amazing! Will look at spills in a whole new way! "Don't clean that! It's my art project!" LOL!

What a waste of a nice espresso coffee... but that piece of art that came out of it was amazing. Brilliant.
