Tea Vessel 188
Japanese Watercolour pigment on paper | 2018
“Tea Vessels” also known as “Saying Stop to the Screen - Saying Yes to the Brush” is a series of works depicting objects related to contemporary tea culture. Each painting was created within ten minutes to twenty minutes, during which a cup of tea would also be savored. The simple action and enjoyment of painting are celebrated simultaneously. This body of work emerged in 2017 as the artist was working on the first volume of the publication series Journal du Thé- Contemporary Tea Culture which she co-founded.

“Contemporary cultures are often extremely fast and ever-changing. My practice engages with slower tasks which demand commitment and help us to focus our attention. In my paintings, I depict activities such as growing plants and preparing and sharing tea, which also are parts of my daily life.”
