Minimal Intervention Wines through Mimi’s eyes
Mimi’s concept for her Brisbane Street Arts Festival piece on Fish Lane
Minimal intervention wines captured Mimi’s mind when she came to think of Wandering Cooks and what we’re working towards through our ethos, action and approach.
“It is both a reflection of what Angela is building through her company manifesto, and something I’m personally interested in within my arts practice. For the majority of people, their food and drink choices are the single, biggest contributor to their personal carbon footprint, and I’m interested in what that footprint might look like if we’re supporting local producers and small businesses with a focus on people and planet over profit. I’m optimistic about the future of food, and I’ve highlighted this optimism with a visually striking artwork that’s beautiful, playful, approachable and will become truly iconic for Fish Lane.” Mimi
This abstract artwork carries through it a visual narrative, which broken down reflects the four main stages of biodynamic wine production:
GROW – in line with the lunar cycle, the surrounding environment, and with respect for the earth.
HARVEST – gently, and with anticipation
PRODUCE – the process of making biodynamic wine
DRINK – and celebrate the ritual of wine with shared food and community
There are a number of deeply considered design elements within Mimi’s artwork itself which help to communicate the broader concept in a visually striking, playful and engaging way.
This wall not only reflects Mimi’s amazing creativity but it shows off what we’re achieving in our little bar – Drinks at Wandering Cooks by sourcing minimal intervention wines to truly support the local makers who truly care about what they’re doing. Thank you Mimi.
