Coffee Cup Paintings

Susan Jane Belton paints coffee cups. She says:

In these drawings and paintings, I focus on the remains of that specific, automatic, mundane, contemporary activity. The process is a means of investigating these logo emblazoned, disposable, talismanic objects of our culture.

I wonder if there is any connection between global issues and our private, automatic behaviors, like drinking coffee, that we engage in while we discuss solutions to these world problems. Sometimes when I'm overwhelmed it helps to focus on what's right in front of me, draw it and try to understand what it means.
