About the Piece
This image is a visual representation of Sassicaia, a wine emblematic of the spirit of innovation that seized the winemakers of the Tuscan coast in the middle of the previous century.  The image depicts the wine's almost architecturally precise structure.  Each aroma reflects and refracts through this complex frame, the whole picture only gradually emerging in its subtle, self-contained brilliance, each moment delivering an impeccable sense of proportion and control.

About Sarah Heller
Sarah Heller is an artist of mixed Asian and European descent living and working in Hong Kong.  Drawing on her background as a Master of Wine, her work attempts to capture the subjective experience of tasting wine and explores the synthetic work of imagination required to recreate and share that experience.  Her series titled Visual Tasting Notes focuses on individual wines and the pieces are meant to be read narratively from top to bottom, tracing the wine from initial impression to final aftertaste.  Each one is a collage of hand painted, digitally painted and photographic fragments.
