Micheal Farrell (1940-2000)
Micheal Farrell was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland. In the 1950s, he studied at the St. Martin's School of Art in London, and at the Colchester School of Art. During the beginning of his artistic career, he created mainly abstract motifs, while his later works became more figurative. These are mainly concerned with the issues of nationalism, colonialism, mythology and politics, particularly in relation to his native Ireland. From the 1970s, Farrell lived primarily in France. The artist has exhibited widely in Ireland and abroad. In 1979, the Doulas Hyde Gallery in Dublin organized a retrospective in his honor. Works by Farrell are in the collections of the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris, the Arts Council of Ireland, and the Contemporary Art Society in London, amongst others. (cko)
