Painting: Japanese, Chinese ink, mineral pigments and watercolors on rice paper.
Some years ago, I had the immense fortune to stay for the summer in a small wine village of the Priorat, a unique wine region in Catalonia. I was so impressed by the ancestral grapevines that grow in the small vineyards of this precious land that no other than this grapevine painting could have been born from the intimacy with the winemaker.
The grapevine painting is mounted on a soft yellow silken scroll which enhances the autumn atmosphere. The scroll has a natural wooden roller at the bottom and is ready for hanging.
The hanging scroll shows a grapevine with abundant grape clusters, brushed in an abstract pictorial language. The dark vine in black ink and the subtle colors of the wine grapes and foliage evoke the vineyard in late autumn.
In my wine paintings the grapevine does not only stand for the physical plant but also symbolizes the spiritual seeker who becomes more and more mature and becomes ready to drink the glorious wine.
Size of the scroll in cm: 177 x 91 x 0,2 cm. The width of the scroll without the rollers is 82 cm or 32 inches.
The scroll will be shipped rolled in a traditionally-made silk box.
