Robert Marchessault | Chateau Ste Michelle
Chateau Ste Michelle's most recent Artist Series wine will be released later this month, featuring the work of Robert Marchessault.
From the wine set: "Robert Marchessault is a painter with a passion for trees, having planted over 7000 of them on his land in Canada. Nurturing them over many years, his observations of the forces that shaped their growth influence his art. His trees are painted from memory, allowing for an ambiguity that makes each tree at once recognizable and unknown. 'It is not possible to see them as static; rather, they respond to both the long term climatic forces and the immediate influences of weather.' In this way, both the artist and vintner seek to intuitively understand nature's enigmatic impact on their respective creations."
The wine is now available for purchase here, while supplies last.
Marchessault received a Visual Arts Diploma from Dawson College, Montreal, QC, a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal, QC and an MA from Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON. His work has been shown internationally including at Gotland Museum, Visby, Sweden, and many galleries across North America. He’s been the recipient of dozens of awards including a Canada Council Travel Grant, and has received extensive press coverage. Marchessault’s paintings are in dozens of art collections including 20th Century Fox, Bank of Montreal, Rothschilds Inc, and Royal Bank, among many others.
