An abandoned bottle of champagne and two half-empty glasses hint at an interrupted celebration, allowing the viewer to substitute his own interpretation or memory of a special occasion. In "Let's Get Lost," Thomas Arvid recalls the classic jazz tune that describes the unconventional behavior of a couple in love. With his equally unconventional subject of effervescent white wine, we fall in love with Arvid all over again.
Thomas Arvid's breathtaking paintings of wine serve as a commentary for how we drink wine today. Gone are the stuffy and formal affectations of yesteryear. In their place, Arvid shows the casual and gracious role that wine plays in our lives. Through Arvid's eyes we are reminded that fine wine is indeed a luxury for everyday living.
