A Caravan at Barton Estate by Kylie Fogarty
There will always be a caravan in my solo exhibitions. Why? Caravans symbolise my ultimate relaxation, and there are many many places where I would love to have just a Caravan, a book and a bottle of vino, to sit back and to relax. Nestled under the tree at the top of the hill of Barton Estate is one of them.
During a seven-year residency at Barton Estate Wines, Kylie Fogarty has witnessed the care taken during the viticulture process and also the heartache of an enduring love of the vine. The body of work will include paintings and drawings, responding to her experience at the winery, as well as the varying elements which have impacted the wines during this time, including heat, rain, hail, and more recently, fire and devastatingly, smoke.
This exhibition embraces not only the landscape of the location of Barton Estate Wines, but also the love and process of Viticulture.
