“Dan McDermott paints dynamic photo-realist canvases. His work is original and expertly
executed. Always emphasizing the choice of subject matter, his work may depict a New York
street scene, a speeding car, the exterior of a San Francisco tenement block or a distant
urban landscape.

McDermott derives his material from film or television or from his own cine-film. The process is
a layered technique that enthusiastically embraces technological visual media. By progressing
through various generations of production, McDermott arrives at his rich representations
typified by heightened colour and tone. His works are defined by a personal style enlivened by
compositional cropping and unusual vantage points.”
