Chris Dorland (b. 1978, Montreal, Canada) is a New-York based visual artist.
His work combines hyper-representation and hyper-abstraction by manipulating digital printed imagery.
In this way he creates dystopian visions of the human-built world filtered through the sublimated violence of abstraction, consumerism and technology. Working with a variety of screens, scanners and drones, Dorland is interested in the ways in which machines increasingly perceive, record and reproduce the world through data visualisation, scanning hardware and other optical devices.

Past exhibitions include the Front International, Cleveland Triennal for Contemporary Art ; Aetopoulos, Athens ; Super Dakota, Brussels ; Martos, Los Angeles ; Lyles & King, New York ; Marianne Boesky Uptown, New York ; Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Los Angeles ; Nicoletti Contemporary, London...

He is part of the collections of Whitney Museum of American Art, The Bronx Museum of Art, Microsoft, Dawson College, Neuberger Berman, The Juilliard School of Art, The Langham, Chicago IL.
