'Introspection', Amy Dunne, 2016
Hand-cut paper and card
20 x 15 cm
Coffee is more than a beverage; the act of drinking coffee is sometimes nearly ritualistic, in that people visit cafés for not only coffee but also the experience. The time taken in a coffee shop can sometimes be the only reprieve from a busy day, allowing the drinker a moment to gather their thoughts and have a break just to relax. My artwork reflects the quiet introspection of this, with the silhouette being filled by the rich bronzed colour of the coffee behind; this alludes the feeling of replenishment after a good coffee break.
