Nyall Farrell is an artist who has recently moved to Kinsale to realise his long-held ambition to paint the meeting of the land and sea along Irelands south west coast.
Nyall spent 2019 studying under Martin Kinnear at the Norfolk School of Painting and has built up a repertoire of classical and modern styles and techniques which he is now putting to use. The philosophy at the Norfolk School is that you need to understand the rules and techniques so that you can then break them.
Nyall’s artistic influences include Turner, Donald Teskey and Kurt Jackson.
“I’m interested in looking in my paintings at those special places where the land meets the sea and the ways in which we are both drawn to and yet fear the sea and the power it has to erode all our efforts to create structures on that frontier“
