Cliff Kearns Bio

Kearns has spent this past nine years creating contemporary abstract artworks which incorporate numbering as a major theme and thread in his painting practice. 

"My art is becoming more about the incorporation and integration of sequential numbering and sometimes the word 'IMAGE' into each painting and construction.  As an artist, I feel compelled to make visual 'images'... and most aspects of our lives involve, are effected and affected by numbers - in time, measure, amount, distance, and score.  License number, telephone number, que number, and social insurance number are merely a few that play into our time spent. Numbers, at times unfortunately, dictate our Life's direction and worth. And as we at times are identified only by a number, so too each of my paintings has it's own number and identity"... 'Life Can Become a Numbers Game'. 

Cliff Kearns has been drawing, painting and making art of one kind or another for as long as he can remember.  This transition to self expression comes after a successful and formidable career producing realistic private/corporate art commissions, portraits and freelance illustration projects for international clients.

Cliff's work been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and cultural centers in Canada, including The Arts Project and Westland Gallery in London, Ontario, the Art Works Gallery in Vancouver BC, the Papermill Art Gallery in Toronto, and Galerie Luz in Montreal. He has exhibited in New York City, Park City Utah, Palm Springs, Palm Desert and North Hollywood California. His art has also been represented and received awards in numerous on-line juried exhibitions. His Art is in many private and corporate collections.
