Details: Original, unique signed painting. Images are Flaherty’s language, which he creates with fiery poetic incisiveness. His energetic brushstrokes freeze-frame nature, form or matter in motion. He speaks in spirited, lustrous colour. He paints the wind harrying the waves, frost biting the furze and “the murmur of stones”. His paintings can be sensuous and vibrant, august and timeless, meditative and still; and they are, also, gifts of hope. And the painting calls to its buyer. It chooses us. It is we who are owned. Michael Flaherty was born in Cloghane on the Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry in 1950. Michael studied in Maynooth, Cork and Sligo before returning to Kerry in 1989. Here he developed his distinctive style of painting to convey his love of the Kerry landscape. His work has featured in many group and solo shows around Ireland, Britain, Europe and the USA. His first exhibition with The Kenny Gallery was in 1990. His work is represented in public and private collections including Irish Life, ESB, Dublin University, Kerry Food, various Government Departments, New York University and Commerz Bank of Frankfurt.
