"Coffee Plant Haven" Sophia Hunt, 2014
Gouache on paper
For my interpretation of coffee (and the experience of coffee), I wanted to portray a more traditional side to the experience. I looked at many different coffee plants, and liked the idea of highlighting the source of our cups of coffee. I’m interested in scenes and environments, so I tried to created a scene for the coffee shop experience that was slightly out of the ordinary, and reflected the history of coffee as well as the beauty of the coffee plant itself.
