Tea Stain

2004

Exploring ideas relating to the artist’s signature, Tea Stain is a unique edition which shows both Turk’s recent presence but also his absence. The “mark” of the artist is a piece of ephemera which could either be treasured as a relic or discarded as waste. Meanwhile, Tea Stain also continues Turk’s interest in the nature of tea and its relationship to British heritage and colonialism but also tea breaks as the artist contemplates the blank page and the next idea begins to form.
