Coffee + Bikes = Art

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 16

Got this in the email, I know this lady, she is a great artist, you should go check out her stuff.


whose legs of coffee are these???

Five large pieces hung at Equal Exchange Cafe all represent my recent photo-based work that I’ve completed with used coffee grinds supplied by the Equal Exchange Cafe. The grinds were dried, applied to artboard, then photographed, printed, and framed.

The frames are made of used pallets, burlap coffee bags and discarded bicycle chain links. They are just as awesome in reality as they appear in the photos.

Complete spectrum of the work can be previewed on my website: CLICKETY-CLICK. But what you should really do is take a brisk little walk in the North End and visit the coffee shop that conducts its business in a sustainable, conscious and tasty fashion. And is supportive of emerging artists.

To make it really REALLY easy for you, here’s the address: 226 Causeway, Boston. It’s right past North Station.

I would like to thank everybody who came out to the opening and encourage everyone to come check it out and tell your friends!! Also, my friend and fellow artist Jennifer O’Donnell is responsible for all the pretty signage there – so good!

    Okay, so clearly the artist is talented and a little bit innovative, but who would want a PICTURE of art made with coffee beans?
    It just looks like a grainy, poorly shopped photograph.

    Zem: its hard to know exactly what people will want as far as art goes…thats kind of the point of art. You should for sure check her out though she takes great photographs…

    i guess the message that i take away from the piece is removal then.
    like i said, clearly she is a good artist, which is why i’m confused that she would sell pictures of her art and then call that art.
    its like paying for a framed picture of a sculpture or a painting in a museum or studio.

    i don’t know, maybe i misunderstand, but it just feels cheap.

    Very eccentric! This style is discovered through serendipity – I bet not. But this really looks fantastic. Coffee beans use as medium in such wonderful masterpiece? I barely believe it. But for sure, this is for real! Hope to view more masterpieces using such media in your other posts.
