Dan McDermott investigates our experience of contemporary life at a remove, selecting his imagery from film skills through oil paint. McDermott favours an instinctive reaction, deciding on his subject just moments before he puts brush to canvas.
The immediate process is tangible in McDermott’s paintings of American life, invoking the speed at which choices are made in a country which prides itself on a wealth of opportunity. Oil paint and turpentine achieves the slick seepage across layers infused with speed and energy, freezing momentary glimpses of flashing televisual scenes.
Dan McDermott (b. 1972) lives and works in London.
