Barton Estate Vista by Kylie Fogarty
The panoramic view from the top of the hill above the vines was the first thing that I wanted to draw. Spindly sticks and rugged stalks gave way to the view of the mountain, I couldn’t wait to start the mark making!
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.
