Terroir is a french term that

typically is used to describe wine, literally translated means: earth, or soil. But it also encompasses the mineralogy, climate, region, weather, altitude, that defines place. It can also be used to describe food, and in my case, a new body of work. I think of my work as reflective of the specificity of place. With this in mind, here is the development and research of Terroir, in sculpture, paintings and video. Please visit contemporary pastoralism
