About Carol McDermott
Carol McDermott studied Fine Art in London, sponsored by Christies Fine Art Auctioneers. An abstract and figurative painter; working professionally since 1991 with work in collections in America, Australia, France and the UK. "Each painting is a journey and inspiration comes in many forms; nature, metaphysics, music, literature and everyday life. My process of painting is spontaneous and instinctive. I love colour and combinations of colours which intrigue me, each having an effect on us in subtle or copious ways; healing, energising, calming, uplifting or poetic. My paintings can be thickly painted, textured or with thin washes and sometimes words or graffiti. With the use of stark contrasts and crude mark making, giving a raw emotive energy. I enjoy using different mediums and I like my materials to be the barometer for how the painting will look. And I'll always have a longing for landscape."
