The 3rd International Fair of Actual Art in the cellars in Pouilly-Fumé was the first weekend of May in our little city of Pouilly-sur-Loire. The goal of this event was to bring together painters and winemakers. The Masson-Blondelet estate chose Muriel Napoli and her works of art, permitting to go perfectly with art and wine.
Amandine Chevalier, art historian, tells some words about it:
“Muriel Napoli exposed her minerals and organics works at Masson-Blondelet estate. Her delicates paintings with grey nuances, where we can find now some colour, parsimonious blue, evoke the permanent transformation of the nature, between sedimentation and concretion. Her technique is a sharing between fluid and transparent application and accumulation of paint, small cluster as meteors. The obtained abstract forms sometimes evoke flowers petals which perfectly married with the vault of the cellar. The owner of the cellar is attentive to the nature and applies integrated viticulture. Not very concerned by labels and other appellations, he grows his vines respecting the environment and talks with passion of his wines. The different terroirs of Pouilly-Fumé AOC – Kimmeridgian marl, limestone soil or flint – express themselves in his different cuvées.”
