It Goes On

Kim Dorland
It Goes On

Kim Dorland’s paintings are accumulative, both in the way the paint is added to the surface, sometimes in thick impasto, other times delicately one layer atop another like a stamp placed on a letter, and in the psychological states they reveal and represent. Ultimately, the world created by Dorland in It Goes On is one where the natural world has begun to fight back, transforming forests and sunsets that were once sites of solace and contemplation into psychological states fraught with questions as to how we will find our way out of this mess.
