I am currently working on a series entitled "Maps" for an exhibit at 2 Origens Wine Bar in Falset. The idea behind this group of pieces revolves around the idea that Priorat and Montsant winemakers do not have a single vineyard they draw from, but many. Vines are scattered throughout the countryside, drawing subtlety from a variety of soils and micro climates. Working with the colors from each cellar, I am developing pieces that speak to this idea as well as the vision, as I interpret it, each winemaker imparts. Represented are seven cellars: Ficaria Vins, Fredi Torres, Meritxell Palleja, Mas Doix, Bodegas Mas Alta, Alfredo Arribas, and Clos Figueres.
Working on a canvas size of 45cm X 65cm, each piece incorporates naturally dyed textile, embroidery, pigments derived from local soils. Stay tuned for further details, as the show date gets closer. Below ia a small sampling of works in progress.
