David O'Kane Ireland, b. 1985

Overview

It is difficult to define his art world in one sentence as David's works diverge among various medium, such as painting, photography, animation, movie, and drawing. Generally each genre could easily become disconnected unless it is designed for specific exhibit and theme, but it is observed to have a symbiotic relationship in his work.  At the same time, the static painting, like a stuffed moment or an ended microcosm, acts as a mediator representing the momentary stories and situations in the work by being given the dynamic role like a frame in a movie. O’Kane was shortlisted for the Golden Fleece Award 2013, Dublin and was awarded the Derek Hill Foundation Scholarship and Residency at the British school, Rome.
