Trevor Kiernander

b. 1975, Mississauga, ON.

Trevor Kiernander’s paintings examine and assemble space and spaces, exploring the problematization of the figure/ground relationship in painting.  The work begins with an interest in the formal aspects of painting and a concern with “painting as painting”, focusing on material and process, where discarded masking and under-drawings are often crucial to the final composition.  Taking ideas and inspiration from a constantly growing collection of images, Kiernander breaks these down and constructs a world formed of dislocated and interwoven partial planes, lines and shapes.
