Miss O'Murphy ( A Shorter History ) by Micheal Farrell


Miss O' Murphy subverts a 'classical pose' in art giving the work a satirical twist with its statement 'This is the first real political poster about Ireland'.

Farrell employs broad ranging sources and ideas and in this group of works. He confronts many important issues - history, memory, war, nationality, internationalism, terrorism, the role of art and the predicament of the individual in society.
