About the Art
McDermott’s vivid, sleek and glossy oil paintings hold in perfect balance the relationship between image and the materiality of paint.
His technique enthusiastically embraces both technological visual media and traditional art materials. By progressing images through various generations of production and reproduction, 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.
