Derek Sullivan

° 1976, Richmond Hill (CA) – lives and works in Toronto (CA)

Derek Sullivan employs drawing, painting, sculpture, book works and installation to question familiar forms and genres, often to examine the links between one discipline and the next. Sullivan cross-pollinates the visual aesthetic of modernist design and geometric abstraction with the forms and strategies of conceptual art to create a cacophony of messages and inter-work refractions. Books and the act of reading have consistently been central to Sullivan’s practice.
