Chatham Vines, 2006

This book lavishly documents and critically contextualises the project Chatham Vines. Chatham Vines is an award winning seminal work often cited in ecology and art discussions. 

In 2006 Chatham vines won the Rouse Kent Public Art Award 2006, which is given each year for the best piece of public art created in the county. 

Internationally acclaimed art critic Richard Cork chaired the award's judging panel. 
"The judges were immediately impressed by the boldness of John Newling's decision to install a pathway of Pinot Noir vines in the central aisle of St John's Church." said Richard Cork. "Starting with an austere structure of vertical tresses, it changed into an overwhelmingly rich and sensuous experience for everyone lucky enough to visit the site. 
"In full bloom, it must have been a magical experience, even for visitors who knew nothing about contemporary art. And it turned out to be a powerful, poetic symbol of regeneration for a disused church waiting to be transformed in the regeneration of Chatham town centre."
