1/3 of triptych titled Pauillac (2015), price is for the entire triptych and pieces are not sold separately

Known as the most powerful of the five first growths of Bordeaux, Château Latour was the inspiration for this wine sculpture, En-Counting. Through aesthetic distillation, the sculpture transcends the experience of the wine and its Château. Enclosed in a brass casing are hand-blown, hermetically sealed vials of wines which are backlit through a photograph of Canadian currency. Using monetary symbolism, the Pauillac sculptures juxtapose the present with the past while exploring notions of currency and historic value. On the left, the iconic Caribou from the Canadian 25 cent piece dating from 1937 opposes Napoleon Bonaparte III of France from a gold coin dating from 1866. Two iconic monetary symbols that capture the power of both the Château and its wine.
