Kim Dorland



If you were fortunate to see the sensational exhibit "You Are Here: Kim Dorland the Return to Painting" which ran at the McMichael Gallery during the fall of 2013 you witnessed the graduation of the artist from the"emerging" category to blue-chip superstar painter.

...And then the Globe and Mail declared him the 2013 Artist of the Year. 

Kim Dorland (b. 1974) is the most accomplished and collected artist of his generation in Canada. He revived Canadian figurative/landscape painting with his signature neon hues and graffiti influenced bravado. 

This striking work on paper, with one of his signature long-haired figures, is from the transition or maturity point in his career. Reminiscent of Peter Doig, this is unmistakably Dorland. 

Works on paper, especially from this era and in this size are exceedingly rare. 

Additional images available on request.
