Chris Dorland

Chris Dorland (b.1978) is a Canadian/American artist living and working in New York.

Dorland works at the intersection of painting and digital media. With an emphasis on examining the ways in which surveillance technologies perceive, record and reproduce reality, he uses a variety of screens, drones and other optical devices to explore the increasingly tenuous boundaries between physical and digital environments, actual and virtual realities. Dorland has been developing and refining a unique compression of both analog and digital languages into a singular and dense aesthetic rife with both unexpected beauty and extreme chaos. Neither fully abstract nor functionally representational, Dorland’s work allows us to apprehend the force of intrusive technologies as they increasingly distort and glitch our understanding of reality. Dorland’s paintings and videos are a haunting meditation on contemporary life that evokes a dystopian vision of the human-built world through the sublimated violence of abstraction, consumerism and technology.

Past exhibitions include the Front International, Cleveland Triennal for Contemporary Art ; Aetopoulos, Athens ; Super Dakota, Brussels ; Martos, Los Angeles ; Lyles & King, New York ; Marianne Boesky Uptown, New York ; Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Los Angeles…

He is part of the collections of Whitney Museum of American Art, The Bronx Museum of Art, Microsoft, Dawson College, Neuberger Berman, The Juilliard School of Art, The Langham, Chicago IL.
