Dorland is originally from Canada and many of his pieces refer to his homeland. The image to the left certainly calls to mind a Canadian forest.
His paintings are not idyllic but have something of a harsh edge to them. There is beauty in nature to be sure but there is also conflict. Some pieces juxtapose the modern, man-made world intruding on nature.
