"Spine Bean", Piet Hein Haverkamp, 2014
Oil paint on Canvas
80 x 80 cm
The painting “Spine Bean” is a tribute to coffee because coffee is the backbone of our society. It’s the most consumed drink in the world, the drink that has no cultural or social boundaries, the drink that stands in the center for meeting and connecting with other people.
The spine within the bean also stands for hard labor. The hard labor that needs to be done to get the coffee out of the coffee bean and on the other hand the hard labor of those who drink the coffee!
