AboutAlon Zakaim Fine Art has the pleasure of hosting Second Focus, an exhibition of oil paintings by Dan McDermott. Returning to Cork Street with his second solo exhibition of photorealist work, McDermott's latest collection breathes new life into scenes and figures from decades past.
Born of a childhood fascination with the glamour of adult life captured in movies and film, McDermott's work is directed by his attraction to the reproduced image. Drawing upon archives of photographic stills collected from film, internet, television and documentary footage from the 1940s to the present, McDermott reintroduces the subjects of these stills to the contemporary eye.
Dan McDermott has exhibited extensively throughout Britain and abroad since graduating from the University of Northumbria in 1995. Most recently he has been involved in a number of solo and group exhibitions in London and New York, including shows held at the Northcote Gallery, London, The Clapham Gallery, London and The Silas Marder Gallery, New York.
