Darren McDonald, Rose, 2019

Jerico Contemporary was delighted to present Darren McDonald’s debut solo exhibition with the gallery, ‘Disappear Here’. The show opened on May 16th and continued through to June 1st, 2019. 

Photographed between Brooklyn, Paris, and the beaches of Malibu, all the way to the vast expanses of Patagonia, McDonald’s photographs are caught on a feeling—their visual narrative defying the specifics of time and place.

Instead, the photographs capture the beauty in the ephemeral moment—of bodies in space; a whisper of smoke; a decaying flower; the hour after sunrise as the day unfurls. Impermanence becomes the subject.

McDonald’s images range from still life to landscapes—sometimes subtle, sometimes sublime, revealing intricacies and details only real on reflection.

Disappear Here; just for a moment.
