Paintings by Toronto artist Kirk Sutherland

our June 2016
PRIDE Exhibition

June 2 - July 2, 2016


Conduit by Kirk Sutherland, 2016

Artist Kirk Sutherland’s work is influenced by the Abstract Expressionist Movement, Post-Painterly Abstraction and Lyrical Abstraction. He is also influenced consciously, and sub-consciously by his surroundings as well as the formal elements of art, and the materials he creates with. The two predominant elements in Sutherland’s work hinge between his keen sense of colour, and his use of pictorial space.

“I feel my creative process bridges and somewhat amalgamates both intuitive, and conscious realities. My paintings do not imitate life, but perhaps harness the energy and the essence of life. I find myself channeling to a higher energy or light, in which the medium, the action, and the paintbrush are collectively an umbilical between the soul, the essence and that of the material world.”
