Coffee and tea are playing an important role for the Frankfurt-born artist Marc Remus - but not as stimulants for inspiration.
He boils three typse of teas with blossoms to get a dark color. He sieves off the blossoms, mixes the teas and adds powdered coffee.
This mixture he applies to watercolor paper, adds salt and creates patters by placing the tea blossoms on top.
Watercolor, acrylics and pastel is used to work on top of the layers. The finishing varnish is cracked open with salt, so that crystals emerge. www.Remus.biz
