Michael Flanagan

Michael Flanagan’s antiqued images of train stations and bridges recreate a world in which history and heritage collide. The frayed edges and dog-eared corners convincingly simulate an image’s aging process, upending our preconceptions of historical reality and fiction. Flanagan forces us reassess our feelings of nostalgia, since it is unclear if these familiar railroad scenes represent true sites in place and time.


His work has exhibited widely throughout the 1980s and 1990s, notably at P.P.O.W. Gallery, NY. He received a Fellowship in Painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts (1986) and a Visual Artist Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts (1987).
