“Eight Empties” celebrates an evening of sharing wine and conversation. The composition reflects a spontaneous moment, the gathering of a set of bottles shared and emptied among friends. Even in its spontaneity and trueness to reality, it achieves artistic success in a balance of positive and negative space so important to a horizontal composition.
Thomas Arvid’s own love of wine has created a bond between him and those whose work inspires him. His dedication to relating through art wine’s place in our life and lifestyle is born of an understanding and pleasure in the sheer joy of wine. Cheers!
