Vintage corkscrew art is generally more geared toward collectors of both vintage prints and wine accessories. For this reason, corkscrew paintings like the 'Antique Corkscrew Series' by Daphne Brissonnet contain not only faded graphic backgrounds but also labels along the bottom in order to define what kind of corkscrew is being depicted.
Modern artists make use of the iconic shape of the corkscrew in order to portray unique aspects of the accessory in their corkscrew paintings. These unique aspects can be seen in unusual perspectives, as seen in Michael Goddard's, 'Screw the Cork', or in retro graphic elements, as seen in the alcohol painting 'Exquisite Red' by Susy Pilgrim Waters. The main purpose of these works is to change how people think of common objects, rather than to illustrate alcohol culture.
