Members take over is back, and this month we’ll take you on a journey you've never experienced before.
Our faithful member Joelle Deroy will be launching a 2-week art exhibition at our London Club: From Travel to Barrel!
Come and join Joelle accompanied by one of our ambassadors, who will share 3 whiskies of the same character that Joelle has drawn inspiration from. You will see this inspiration in some of her artwork that will be on show. Joelle Deroy is a multi-media artist, trained in France and California. She lives and works in London and is represented by the Art Gallery Zermatt (Switzerland). She is as passionate about the Matterhorn Mountain as she is about the cliffs of the Scottish distilleries. Joelle will present her latest creations, combining painting, photography, and digital art, including her 2 new crypto-art series.
"I am fascinated by the flexibility of the human mind and by the play of forces underlying any great human venture or mountain.... in one word, by ADAPTABILITY.
In a changing world, my latest art is an invitation to transcend the old and the new, combining the crafts of yesterday and of tomorrow. I created my artworks combining digital hand drawings directly from my fingers onto a digital screen, then digitally elaborated to create a crypto-art embedded in block-chain. My initial inspiration, for each artwork, has been a real encounter with nature, a moment in time captured by a photograph in a Polaroid format. And while nature enraptures us, let us not forget the charm of Single Malt Whisky, expertly developed by human skills! Hence, as a counterpoint to the mountain, I am celebrating too the many facets of some of the most unique distilleries of Scotland, their fruits united here for our greatest pleasure!”
