His exploration of the demanding style of “super-realism” has earned him a noteworthy place among leading painters. Throughout his career he has determinedly avoided the vogues and excesses of the art world mainstream and has won acclaim for his oil paintings.
Farrell has been exhibiting his work for over thirty years and has been represented by leading galleries across the country. His paintings have been displayed in over thirty solo exhibitions and have been included in countless group exhibitions. His works can be found in public and corporate collections throughout the United States and numerous private collections internationally.
Recent recognition includes the John Young-Hunter Memorial Award honoring his work in the 81st & 84th Allied Artists of America Exhibition, New York City -other honors include the City of Milwaukee Art Commission's Award of Excellence. Farrell’s work has been the subject of seven retrospective exhibitions at such locations as the Charles Allis Art Museum, Milwaukee, and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters, Madison. Farrell is an Honorary Artist Member of the Allied Artists of America, Inc., and he is included in Who's Who in American Art.
