"Kim Dorland" explores the mind and work of one of Canada's most intriguing contemporary artists. Named Globe and Mail 'Artist of the Year' in 2013, Dorland has captured the public's imagination with his tour-de-force, visceral creations. His paintings are at once referential, material, psychological, beautiful, and uncomfortable, resulting in a body of work that is seemingly disparate but undeniably connected through its idiosyncratic - and maximal - use of paint in all its forms.
