David O'Kane Ireland, b. 1985
David O’Kane is a figurative painter and his practice diverge among various
medium, such as painting, photography, animation, movie, and drawing and especially epic and dreamy paintings drawn with realistic techniques represent him. He describes dream-like and far-fetched situation from reality. 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. He rearranges characters in mysterious atmosphere with historical backgrounds, taking viewers to his own narrative.
David 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. His work is represented in the collections including G2 Kunsthalle in Germany and the Zabludowicz Collection in the UK.
