Peter Kirkland

Peter Kirkland’s oil paintings are both symbolic and abstract, recalling the work of Georgia O’Keeffe and Henry Moore.  They depict complex and powerful visual representations of organic figures.

Writing about his 2002 solo exhibition at the Transit Gallery, John Deal of View magazine says, “Kirkland’s paintings allow for our complete and total pleasure of looking.  Not easily sucked into a post-Modern discourse or circumvented by a stylized moniker, Kirkland is able to create objects that carry an authentic aura not easily filed under any previous code.”

Kirkland received his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts with Honours from York University in Toronto in 1987 and completed the Advanced Studies Program at the Dundas Valley School of Art in 1992.
