Kim Dorland’s works remind us of the power of nature and the impact that humanity has upon our environment. His paintings are typically inspired by the landscapes of his native Canada, as well as more traditional landscape painting and portraiture such as that explored through Tom Thomson, of Canada's famed Group of Seven. Perhaps most indicative of Dorland's trademark style is a post-punk sensibility: like glowing embers from a fading campfire, Dorland's tableaux suggests the harsh burn-out of a long party, a suburban riot, or a torrid affair. His most recent work even adopts the recent California wildfires as source material. Painted in starkly-coloured impasto, Dorland's scenes often depict a tongue-in-cheek view of modernity versus nature: graffiti-ridden walls, bridges encroaching into the wilderness, sunrise in suburbia littered with beer bottles, or trunks of trees with expletives 'carved' into their bark with paint. The sinister undertone to his perspective is levied by the apparent irreverence to his subject matter and technique. Landscapes and portraits of friends or family emerge through a vigorously applied mountain of paint, or at times rendered ghostly, shadowed, or obscured behind hoods and blankets. Lately, his approach combines has been applied to aluminium panels, where one can catch reflective glimmers through the mounds of paint, perhaps as a method to explore humanity and the uncanny with psychological unease.

KIM DORLAND (b. 1974, Alberta, Canada) lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. He graduated with an MFA from York University, Toronto, in 2013, and a BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver, in 1998. Solo Exhibitions include: 'Same Old Future'. Arsenal Contemporary, New York City (2018); ‘Nemophilia’, Equinox Gallery, Vancouver (2017); ‘Get Out’, Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran, Montreal (2017); and ‘I know that I know Nothing’, Angell Gallery, Toronto (2016). Group exhibitions include: ‘Tantamount’, Castor Gallery, New York (2017); ‘Aidas Bareikis, Kim Dorland & Bill Saylor’, Mier Gallery, Los Angeles (2016); and ‘Major Works’, Equinox Gallery, Vancouver (2016). Dorland was the Globe and Mail’s ‘Artist of the Year 2013’. His works can be found in the collections of the Art Gallery of Alberta, Musée D’art Contemporain De Montréal, The Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, The Richard Prince Collection, and the Taschen Collection. Dorland’s first group exhibition with BEERS London was in ‘O Canada!’ (2017) and his first London solo exhibition, entitled, 'Terror Management Theory' that opened on 1 September and ran until 6 October. 2018. In December of 2018 he will be exhibiting a solo booth with BEERS at Untitled Art Fair in Miami Beach, Florida.
