Coffee and Cigarettes, 2021

Kyveli Zoi

35 x 45 cm

Oil on linen


(ships from Greece)

A female figure dressed in a billowing blue gown looms over a mug. The smoke from a cigarette held in her left hand is formed by the absence of color on the canvas revealing the notion of space disappearance, as time is literally burning out in this composition. The recurring symbol of the cigarette in Kyveli's work aims to portray time and, in this case, a pause in it. In reference to her personal meditative process, through the portrayal of this lonely woman focusing on her intimate moment of contemplation while stirring her coffee and smoking her cigarette, Kyvèli hopes to invite the viewer into her world of thoughts, that eventually take the form of her personified imagined self in the paintings.
