"Daniel McClane is an artist whose practice engages with the post-conceptual tradition of still-life photography. His recent work problematizes the nature of time as an ideological construct and its re-
representation. Moreover, the concept of temporality assists the photographic image to remain in a
state of flux, due to its concurrent encompassing of past and present. As such, this body of work
examines how the photographic image is able to alter the viewer’s perception of temporality and, indoing so, question the ways by which the viewer assimilates imagery related to the passage of time.
His work takes inspiration from and attempts to contemporise Renaissance Still Life Paintings and
within the recent reconfiguration of the genre by the Dusseldorf School of Photography. Influenced by
Olivier Richon’s aesthetic and allegorical intentions, McClane experiments with classic semantics,
allowing the viewer to interpret the work in a number of ways."
