Everyday Monsters

Kim Dorland: Everyday monsters


May 14 – June 28, 2015

Kim Dorland is a painter whose work explores themes that resonate far beyond his own personal experience. Taking on such unusual subjects as zombies, Sasquatch, and Jason of Friday the 13th, as well as providing new perspectives on more conventional subjects such as sunsets, landscapes, and domestic scenes, his dark (and at times darkly comic) paintings have a dense physical presence that transcend their subject matter.

Kim Dorland was born in 1974 in Alberta, Canada. He lives and works in Toronto, Canada. His work has been the subject of recent solo presentations at Contemporary Calgary; Angell Gallery, Toronto; McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinberg, Ontario; Mike Weiss Gallery, New York; and Gallery Bianca, Palermo, Italy. Kim Dorland received his M.F.A. from York University in Toronto, Ontario.
