Coffee Six Ways is the latest work on display at the MET as part of the yourcity.yourstory. curatorial framework.
Facing onto First Avenue, this hand-drawn still life is a juxtaposition of discarded PPE and familiar everyday objects assembled together to represent a moment in time in the Maroochydore City Centre.
This vibrant visual story celebrates all the people involved in the city build; those who are physically present on the ‘tools’ on construction sites and those working behind the scenes; creating drawings, attending meetings, managing spreadsheets and engaging in conversations with everyone working together for a vision greater than the sum of its parts.
Using a hyper-real colour palette, a busy collage of objects and a low-fi yet detailed approach to the illustration, this analogue assemblage is a nod to the humanity involved in both the creative and city building process.
Sam Taylor is an Architect by day and a drawer/maker of things by night. Sam’s art practice contests the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience. She investigates the nexus between the dynamics of landscape, ideas of utopia and the everyday. Her works are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements, examining space, energy (heat, light, water) and landscape in less obvious ways.
This work will be on display at the MET until 31 August 2023.
