Meet me in the Clouds by Kylie Fogarty
Barton Estate skies have the most dreamy of clouds. The majority of the days I was sketching plein air, the clouds would be there, making you want to just sit and cloud watch all day.
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.
Meet me in the Clouds was part of the In The Vines Artist in Residence Solo Exhibition 2020. The exhibition embraces not only the landscape of the location of Barton Estate Wines, but also the love and process of Viticulture.
