Dermot McCarthy, born 1948, Killarney, Ireland
Lived my childhood in Killorglin town by the river Faune before moving to Killarney in 1960, where some time later I worked as a welder for 17 years, in the local factory. Initially I painted the beautiful landscape that is Killarney. Then one day I drew a man with his donkey and cart at a crossroads which in turn became my own crossroads, as that might when adding more detail imaginary shops began to edge their way on to the surface of the drawing. It had arrived: a style of my own which I have continued ever since (that was 1977). Working from the subconscious without preconceived ideas. For me it echoes a gift from God.
Dermot works from his own gallery in Barry's Lane, Killarney, Co.Kerry. Here you can view more of his unique and engaging work.
