Beara was an evocative place removed from his home in a small town on the east coast. Then as now, Beara was as much a state of mind as a physical place; its dramatic and mist-laden countryside populated by a host of phantoms including the devil or Pooka (in guise of man or black dog) and the banshee. He retained, sensual sense of Beara include dampness, colour and drama. When the sun shone the peninsula was almost exotic given the array of colours that burst forth and which local people courageously aped when painting their houses. However, when the mist descended it was transformed into a realm of ghosts; a place where it was possible to believe in co-existing worlds and, to Richard's young eyes, the most beautiful place in the world.

Richard Dwyer just took part in the Hackney Wicked festival and was selected for the Cork Street Open Exhibition in London.
