Sat 14 May to Fri 1 July 2011
Roslyn (Ros) Kee is a self-taught artist from Co. Tyrone, working in contemporary acrylic painting and photography. Although painting has been her focus for the last number of years, photography has always run alongside it and been an intricate part of it. They have both occurred and developed simultaneously.
She has always had a passion for art from her early days but while spending time abroad in her late twenties she discovered this passion was something she needed to explore more deeply.
"Some of my earliest memories are of drawing and painting characters out of storybooks overseas, this love of art seemed to emerge again in a somewhat irresistible way. It started in Africa …… maybe it was the people and their creativity or just being there that sparked something."
This exhibition uses images mainly from the Fanad region where Roslyn spends time whenever she can. This beautiful collection of predominately black and white images will be on exhibit in An Grianán from the 14th May until the end of June 2011.
