Artist: Dan Mcdermott
Dan McDermott's dynamic and expertly executed paintings have a haunting familiarity although the references may not be immediately identifiable.
His extensive body of work is derived from an ever expanding archive of images that for him have an emotional resonance, frozen frames from film and television that are trapped within the decades from which they were born.
The final choice of image will have gone through several layers of processed visual media which McDermott is somehow able to capture in the fast and energetic application of paint.
McDermott is based in London and has forged an impressive portfolio since graduating from the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. He has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and Internationally.
