Unique Treasures of Los Angeles and Wine Country
gouache and collage on paper
24 x 24
The wine label I designed is made of gouache and collage on paper. The references in the work all have a personal connection to me; items from my neighborhood, signage I have seen on my commute, a structure I admire. I have recently been working in this method of gouache and collage in my studio work and it was very easy to see it translate to this purpose of a wine label. I love the rich colors of gouache which remind me so much of Los Angeles matched with the black and white iconography that I have chosen to work with. Los Angeles has a lot to do with my work in general and the opportunity to match my love of Los Angeles with the history of wine making that is so rich in California and Los Angeles has been a great opportunity.
