"This is my work. It is about a moment in time, a visual record of places I have visited. When the light is right, when the colour of the water is sparkling with unimaginable blues, when the local street has been drenched with rain, or the sun is casting its long shadows across a path - these are all moments that make me grateful that I am a painter. I feel driven to record them as if to remind myself why I live here."

Michael McCormack is an Irish Artist. He has a degree in Fine Art from Crawford College of Art in Cork City. In his early twenties he backpacked, painted and exhibited in places as varied as New York, Hawaii, Cornwall and Edinburgh before settling in New Zealand in 2000


Update: March 2024 after twenty plus years painting at 355 The Parade, Island Bay, time has come to move on. I have moved into the city into a large bright studio with the intention of focusing more on my painting without running a simultaneous open studio and gallery.

To maintain a presence in Island Bay, I have a display shop at the Dee Street Roundabout which will show new works, and serve as a pick up point for print, calendar and coaster orders.

It is open by arrangement or on Saturday mornings. Please call ahead on 04 939 9620.
