Palette of the Palate: Napa Artist Paints the Taste of Wine

Napa Artist Penelope Moore pushes the boundaries of sensory experience by fusing art with nuances of wine. She translates the taste of wine into dynamic and expressive large-scale abstract oil paintings. Her series “Palette of the Palate” is a visual interpretation of the palate, exploring how color and mood relate to taste.

“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”

-Alberto Giacometti

Palette of the Palate: Napa Artist Paints the Taste of Wine - A visual interpretation of the palate, exploring how color and mood relate to taste. Penelope Moore pushes the boundaries of sensory experience by fusing art with nuances of wine. By isolating characteristics in wine, she translates taste into dynamic and expressive large-scale abstract oil paintings then pairs each painting with a wine of complementing components.

She begins by isolating particular characteristics in a given wine. Based on viscosity, color, smell, fluidity and taste she then visualizes the painting (using her synesthetic sensibilities) and transfers her interpretation to bold abstract color stories on canvas. Classically trained in painting and known for painting wine related subject matter, in a more literal sense, Napa Artist Penelope Moore recently stepped into an entirely new realm of painting wine and redefines the way viewers experience her art and wine. Her paintings invite viewers to delve deeper into the glass, to see what they are tasting and to taste what they are seeing.

About the Artist

There aren’t many moments in life where you can have a multi-dimensional experience in relation to art; where you can engage several senses at once. In the case of Penelope’s art her audience is able to see, feel, smell and taste the art. I may even go far enough as to include the sense of hearing with the pop of an opening bottle of prestigious wine or the pouring, swirling or swallowing of the luscious juices that add value to these moments of sensual inclusion. Or imagine salivating alongside a juicy yellow palette knife stroke representing the undeniable fresh bursts of citrus and sharp everpresent lemon zest illuminating from the glass. Her work is an entanglement of the senses. She uses contemporary abstract expressionism to communicate taste.

This multi-faceted involvement of engagement is quite unique in the art world and even more so on the wine field. Her art literally translates the message and soul of the bottle she is focusing on and shares its character, personality and story with all who enjoy its contents; from the palette to the palate. Beyond her philosophy, Penelope’s technique is comparable to the mastery and delicately bold use of the palette knife as shown by several other internationally renowned living artists such as Gerhard Richter and Leonid Afremov to the impact of the vast color fields of Mark Rothko, and intense, commanding strokes similar to that of Franz Kline or Willem de Kooning with her avant garde approach of using abstract expressionism to describe wine. What makes Penelope’s artwork so unique from them is that while using the similarly detailed techniques and methods her works in this series, although completely abstract, are thoroughly developed and constructed with genuine pure intention of expressing taste onto canvas.

These unparalleled aspects of creativity and artistic development are what solidify her place in art history as a groundbreaking artist offering new and fresh perspectives into not only the art field but the entertainment field and hospitality offerings via wine. The unique opportunities to engage and interact with her art through multi-sensory moments reinforce the legacy associated with her paintings. They will remain true to the time capsule experience of that minute in time surrounded by a special location with loved ones for years to come.
