Michael is an abstract artist living in Co. Wicklow. He attended both Dublin and Limerick Collages of Art.

He teaches abstract painting on an ongoing basis to groups and also gives one to one tuition. Throughout his career michael has had numerous successful exhibitions in Ireland and abroad. His paintings are held in private and public collections. Gemmell never stops thinking about the landscape as something interiorized “from above and below” rather than as something diagrammatically delineating the lay of the land.His process seems to be one of delving and digging into earthy essences, as when Heaney likes working with his pen to the way his father sinks a spade “into gravelly ground.”

He recently exhibited his work in the Leinster Gallery Dublin.
