Charys Wilson is the Golden Thread Gallery’s University of Ulster MFA Award recipient of 2023. Wilson is a visual artist from the north coast of Northern Ireland who completed her BA Hons Fine Art from Aberystwyth University, Wales in 2015. Working most recently in installation, she looks to challenge our relationship and perception of the natural world. Her background in printmaking has influenced her current practice and recent MFA end of year exhibition. The exhibition in the project space of the Golden Thread Gallery is an exciting opportunity to see Charys’s newly developed work.]
“Every day we are presented with false realities and the line between real and unreal becomes increasingly blurred. In response to climate change and widespread precarity, my work is focused on our relationship with nature. In a society that is so disconnected from the natural world we are often presented with falsified realties. I aim to create meditative installations that encourage the viewer to reconnect with the natural world.” Charys Wilson 2023
As part of her award, Wilson received mentoring and professional support over the 12 months from GTG Director Peter Richards and Deputy Director Sarah McAvera, building to this solo exhibition in the Golden Thread Gallery Project Space in June 2023.
