Kim Dorland: Painting Obsession

Allison Meier writes about Kim Dorland's paintings of his wife Lori on view at Mike Weiss Gallery, New York through August 27, 2011.

Meier writes: "I was overwhelmed with the aggression of the paintings... The human form is not carefully studied, but attacked out of the paint. I was shocked that works so savage were apparently of someone the artist loved, but as I spent more time with them I realized the passion in this was a lover’s obsession."
