Micheal Farrell, 1940–2000

Pressé series, Black and White1970

In his early work Farrell adapted motifs from early Irish art and used them in stylised, hard-edged abstract compositions. He named the style Celtic abstraction and ‘Black and White’ is an example of Farrell’s fusion of early Irish art and current international aesthetic developments.

About the Artist

Micheal Farrell 1940–2000

Irish artist Micheal Farrell attended Central St. Martin's College of Art, London. Farrell’s abstracted pop art style paintings became popular in the late 1960s and he represented Ireland at the Paris Biennale in 1967. Though based in France from 1971, Farrell’s conflictual feelings about Ireland and the escalating violence in the North profoundly influenced his work. A member of Aosdána, he exhibited regularly at the Taylor Galleries and is represented in many private and public collections.
