Keith Wilson Northern Ireland, b. 1971

I’d never been to this part of the country before, was thrilled to be invited and enjoyed discovering new places, often travelling around without a map and marvelling at the changing colours in nature, especially at that time of year as Autumn drifted into Winter.


For years I’d been driving out from my studio in Belfast looking for more rural, anonymous settings. Now, all of a sudden everything I’d been searching for surrounded me.


Over the first few weeks at Ballinglen I really found for the first time a limitless world which I could describe.           - Keith Wilson
