This time Rita alias Purpleryta use the wine to tell wine stories, with her “wine on papers”. Once again she paints faces, like in the exhibition “Mute Myths”.
From 1st to 30th April Palazzo Mentone hosts W-MEN Wine Men, where the messy-hair characters are wine producers. Some of them will attend the opening to chat with the artist about the status of world of wine today.
Visionary as always and a little bit more pop than usual, Purpleryta got the inspiration for this exhibition from the mutant X-men: in W-men mutants have the superpower of wine, that is at the same time, as all the Super heros know, a gift and a damnation, in the words of Peter Parker, and from each super power becomes a great responsibility.
The wine producers will see for the first time their portraits and they will observe a new image of themselves. It will stimulate a discussion about Langhe and Roero areas, a light investigation among wine operators about the meaning of gift, damnation and responsibility. Purpleryta also painted another kind of wine producers: movie and rock stars that are making wine for fun or for fashion. Or for passion.
