Kylie Fogarty has been drawing from an early age, there is rarely an early memory for her without a pencil and paper.
“I have been infatuated with drawing from a young age. It is intrinsic to the process of my art practice.”
Kylie engages the use of negative space, line work and a limited palette to invite consideration of her subject matter. Known for her lyrical style, Kylie is compelled to create works which are influenced by the atmosphere and the rhythm of the moment.
A lover of all art, in particular, Kylie has been inspired by artists such as Turner, Olsen, Olley, Degas and Whitely.
“Drawing enables a simplification of subject matter, providing a catalyst for interpretation, expression, and exploration of time and place. I explore my responses and connection to the natural world, of which often includes cloud formations, coastal scenes, rainforests whilst narrating moments of time.”
Using expressive yet considered mark making, Kylie engages line work to depict the connections within. This love of drawing has extended into a diverse practice which includes drawing, printmaking, painting and miniature works of art.
Kylie is a finalist in The Kedumba Drawing Award (invited) 2020, The 2018 Grace Cossington Smith Art Award and The Lyn McCrea Drawing Prize 2018. Her works are housed in many collections, including being archived in the National Gallery of Australia in the Animalia International Print Exchange 2013 and 2015.
