Chris Dorland’s painting and collage motifs call to mind Andy Warhol’s early silk-screens, as well as the sparse digital glow found in many of director Michael Mann’s neo-noir films.
The Neuberger Museum in Purchase, NY featured Dorland’s work in their exhibition Future Tense: Reshaping the Landscape. His most recent solo exhibition Simulations took place at Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago. Dorland is also the recipient of a number of awards including The Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program Foundation Award, The Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant, and The Scope Emerging Artist Award. His work is in many collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art.
