Chris Wilson

Artist whose mixed media works incorporate texts and maps

Christopher Wilson was born in 1959 in Glengormley, Co.Antrim. He went to Brighton Art College and graduated from there in 1982 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. In 1985 he obtained an MA in Fine Art from the University of Ulster.

Words and text form a kind of material and moral land survey in Chris Wilson’s work. Maps, territory, light intrusions, images of growth and decay, mark, measure and incubate the holy ground of his collages. Wilson has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and currently combines his creative work with managing the Glebe Gallery in Churchill, County Donegal.
