ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Loch Gallery is delighted to feature “The Way of the Vine”, a collection of wine-inspired paintings by Ciba Karisik. In this new series of still lives and landscapes, we follow the path of the grapevine, that long-lived, perennial plant that continues to shape the world’s economy. Ciba’s paintings pay homage to the history of winemaking, acknowledging viniculture as a form of art itself.

The artist returns with his effective large-scale works of deliberately aged and dusty wine bottles with enigmatic landscapes or nondescript interiors as backdrops. His enlarged wine bottle labels have pop-art appeal, but with perspectival depth and painterly brushwork.

Ciba also presents the viewer with paintings of lands that yield the fruit. He chooses wintry scenes of sloping vineyards in valleys or vinelands lying beyond what is visible or known. There are also unexpected images of vine pruning at winter’s end; isolated fires burn and smoke billows from heaps of pruned vines, suggesting the cycle of the grapevine’s life.

Together, the paintings in the exhibition lead us through the way of the vine, shedding light on the vintner’s quest for perfection, or what author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) called ‘bottled poetry’.

Opening Saturday, June 3rd, 2017
10:00am - 5:00pm
