A local artist described as a "new voice in painting" in Derry~Londonderry brings his first solo exhibition in The Playhouse
Occasionally an artist emerges with a completely new and unique style and vision that is not derived from any tradition or current trend. Such is Michael Kilfeather, a painter who has found his own unique visual language
He paints directly and instinctively, making strong and vibrant images, sometimes dark and brooding, sometimes exploding with vivid energy.
Michael was an artist before he started to paint, and in a sense, painting was thrust upon him by an upheaval in his life. Though naturally right handed, he had to train himself to write and paint with his left hand.
Michael Kilfeather is emerging as a new voice in the arts in this unique City of Culture year in Derry~Londonderry 2013.
