This is Tea
An exhibition on tea by Michael Pieracci
This is Tea showcases the artists enthusiasm in tea and explores the great range of color and texture possible. The focal point is an enormous amount of organic waste: used, dried tea leaves consumed in the last 12 months. As this tea (all types, all origins) was brewed and enjoyed throughout the year, the leaves were partly dried. Damp leaves were pressed onto paper, producing a series of unique prints. A series of photographs show cups of brewed tea, but the surprise is the richness and range of color that tea can produce.
