Kirk Sutherland is a Toronto based artist and art teacher. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design(OCAD) in 1991.
He has exhibited his work for over 25 years under the representation of many art galleries. Sutherland’s works are represented in numerous private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.
Kirk Sutherland's creative process bridges, and somewhat amalgamates both intuitive, and conscience realities. His paintings and constructions do not imitate life, but perhaps harness the energy and the essence of life.
He is influenced consciously, and sub-consciously by his surroundings as well as and the formal elements of art, and the materials he creates with. The two predominant elements in Sutherland’s work hinge between his keen sensibility to colour, and his use of pictorial space.
