ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The artist covers the wine-making regions of the world, photographing vineyards, bodegas, wine growers and wine communities. She lives in Brooklyn (New York), but her work includes assignments across the USA, Chile, France, Italy, Argentina, and any part of the world where wine is made.
With her husband, Thomas Matthews, important figure of the wine world, they share the passion for wine-making. Since her book Una ciudad en los viñedos (A city in the vineyards), published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1993, she has completed seven books, among them: Mendoza, nuestro terruño (Mendoza, our land), Chile: El arte del vino (Chile: the art of wine); Washington: El estado del vino (Washington: the wine state) and El Carmenare. Vinos de Chile (El Carmenare. Chilean wines). She has exhibited her work internationally in countries such as the USA, Argentina, Chile and France.
Born in 1984 in Hanover, Germany, Cristina Hobbs is an artist that lives today in Sebastopol, California. In 2011, she got her degree in Fine Artes-Painting from the California College of the Arts. Hobbs divides her time between the wine-making regions of northern California and Argentina.
Her parents were born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Along with her husband, Paul Hobbs, renowned enologist and advisor of various bodegas from the USA, Europe and South America, Cristina visited Bodegas Salentein in 2008 and fell in love with its magnificent landscape. Then, she worked along with Sara Matthews, which allowed her to acquire a deeper vision of Argentina and its culture and, later, express it through her individual works.
She was born in San Rafael, Mendoza, in 1963. She is a self-taught artist and versatile maker. Her curiosity has led her to different artistic disciplines such as ceramics, and clay and oil painting. In this way, her creative impulse, fed by her own world, improves through the noble vines..
