“Jump Into The Future”, Roberta Pinna, 2013
Mixed media on canvas
80 x 120 cm
In my work for The Coffee Art Project I have chosen to entrust the task to a cheerful little girl to believe in a possible change: a leap into the future by the protagonist, led by Africa in a cup of coffee. I have not wanted to clearly identify the skin colour because I see past this change for the hybridization and integration between peoples, cultures and continents. Mine is a wish for the African continent so that I may believe in their own resources, in this case the coffee and, finally, to make a great leap forward.
