The Work of Micheal Farrell
Born in Kells, Micheal Farrell is one of Ireland’s best-known artists. Winner of the Biennale des Jeunes Paris Laureat in 1967, and the Douglas Hyde Gold Medal in 1976, Farrell’s diverse and engaging work spans over 40 years. While his early work was characterised by a hard-edge abstractionism, later figurative works showcase his skills as a draughtsman and are predominately concerned with issues surrounding Irish identity, politics, culture and history. This retrospective highlights the scope of Farrell’s skill. Produced by Solstice, this exhibition will then tour to Crawford Art Gallery and the RHA.
Exhibition Opening: Thurs 22nd August, 7.30pm
