Wine has used a variety of materials in his investigation and explication of these themes: photographs, charred wood, dirt, tree limbs, and rope - emphasizing their identities and the diversity of connotations we have about them. With a keen interest in temporality and consciousness, Wine is fascinated by the transmutable concepts of cognizance and connotation, and the grey areas and boundaries possible in both. In Memory, Perception, and Other Forms of Misdirection, the artist plays with shifting perspectives and tiered layers of meaning, instilling the viewer with a physical sense of the phenomena of experiences. Wine has fabricated artificial forms of the same substances in order to layer their depicted reality with actual reality, insofar as the latter exists.
