Known for his high-key colours and built-up globules of paint, Kim Dorland's paintings have been referred to in Maclean's magazine as "extreme" for their liberal use of material and excessive gestures. His super-thick works sometimes need hidden screws to support the layers and layers of paint which are so substantial that they can take years to fully dry. Dorland's paintings are remarkable for more than just pushing materials to their limits; his images provide nostalgic snapshots of youthful vulnerabilities and frustrated desires which have now passed into memory and history. With his star rising quickly, Dorland's work has recently been shown in important solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Milan and Toronto.

Angell Gallery will be mounting its sixth solo show of Dorland's work in January, 2011. The Ministry's members are invited to an exclusive evening with the artist who will discuss the exhibition, his methods, and his ideas about contemporary art. Members are encouraged to ask questions in this open forum discussion. Refreshments will be served.

Kim Dorland is represented by Angell Gallery in Toronto.
