ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
The Long Goodbye: Dave McDermott
Through Mar 11, 2018 / Grimm Gallery

Dave McDermott

Grimm Gallery is pleased to announce The Long Goodbye, a new solo presentation by Dave McDermott in our New York gallery space.

This marks the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. Dave McDermott’s new works continue his distinctive approach to painting, consistently seeking to enlarge the medium’s inherent boundaries and resisting easy categorization, while developing a recognizable visual vocabulary within their own pluralistic nature.

At once painterly and sculptural, textural and figurative, his works balance a multiplicity of material and formal components to invoke the experience of order among fragmentary elements: a kind of order that arises not as a resolving “answer,” but as an ongoing activity of mind. Ideality and failure are the central themes of his third solo show at Grimm – specifically the doomed pursuit of the ideal that is simultaneously noble, heroic, absurd, and pathetic.
