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.

‘No city or landscape is truly real until it has been given the quality of myth by a writer or painter. The way Michael Flaherty is dealing with the Dingle and Brandon area is part of this mythologizing, the making of this area very special’.
