Michael Flaherty’s

New Summer Collection

at Greenlane Dingle

Born in Cloghane, Brandon, Co. Kerry, Michael paints the apocalyptic power of nature present in his unpopulated landscape. In a highly personal style he captures quickly scenes which are familiar to him but that have been filtered through his imagination. They are the response to and depiction of a place, an object or animal.

Michael’s remarkably assured technique achieves incredibly fresh, incredibly rich compositions. His paintings, spontaneous and lyrical, instill a wondrous ‘frenetic emotional intensity’. Colours are heightened, scenes are intensified, and the sense of movement present is given a vivacity that captures the Wild Atlantic Kerry terrain he knows and loves so well.
