About

Michael Cronin Michael Cronin was born in 1969 in Brisbane, Queensland. As a young man he moved to the town of Katherine in the Northern Territory. It was here that he found his inspiration in art from local Aboriginal artists. He soon purchased works by renowned painters Lorna Fencer Naparrula and Paddy Fordham and came to know them as friends.In 2001 he moved to Adelaide this is where he first started painting. Michael Cronin’s paintings draw from his immediate feelings and emotions, and because of this they convey a natural spontaneity and expressive power. His life experiences of growing up in Far North Queensland and living in the Northern Territory are reflected in his works and are imbued in each of their many layers.These experiences are expressed in his works primarily through the relationship of colour, which is used to create energy. This is also achieved through the sometimes subtle capillary motions of his brushwork paintings to the vigorous slashes of colour in his pallet knife works. Michael’s deep passion for everything that he encounters in life is obvious in his works. His power comes from acknowledging what lies beneath the normal in everyday life. Michael has a Studio Semaphore, open by appointment only. He has a pieces in the private collection of the Menzies Auction house in Sydney and private collections all over the world
