This series of dimensional wallpieces is being created for A Year Long Celebration of Art and Wine, sponsored by Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, in collaboration with the Millbrook Winery (NY). For this project I've been creating mixed-media works that depict the six stages of winemaking as developed by the Millbrook Winery. These seasonal works evolve as the particular stage occurs throughout the year. Elements from the wine-making process are incorporated, such as vines, fallen leaves, oak staves and corks. Each season I collect what is safe to gather from the grounds. The oak stave frames are created from former wine making barrels. Other elements simulate the seasonal conditions, such as delicate branches, animal fur, clay, fabrics, fibers and glass shards.
