Dream Lives | Simon McDermott at Toradh Gallery, Co. Meath


10 October to 14 November 2017

Meath County Council Arts Office presents ‘Dream Lives’ an exhibition of photography by Simon McDermott. Dream Lives is a collection of new photographs by Meath based artist, Simon McDermott. His current photo work is inspired by the world of dreams. The mysterious imagery of this intangible world is an area which Simon is currently exploring in this series.

The images in this collection deal with the symbolism of certain dreams as well as recurring dreams which the artist has experienced. These photographic representations are an attempt to scratch the surface of this world and pose questions about potential meaning and the very existence of these dreams.The role of memory in the visual representation of dreams is also an area which interests the artist. Some of these images utilize digital manipulation which is reflective of the very synthetic nature of dreaming in the human mind.
