Christobel Kelly Mylor, Australia, b. 1956

It is difficult to overstate the influence of the Ballinglen Residency on my art practice. Suffice it to say the great gifts of time and distance have enabled me to expand my material thinking about the act of painting, and the ghosting of landscape. There was my work before I came to Ireland, and there is my work after. They are not the same thing.          - Christobel Kelly
