Cliff Kearns Bio

I Paint Numbers

Cliff Kearns' Art is becoming more about the incorporation and integration of numbering, and numbers into each painting. 

Numbers are Important Factors in our earthly Life. When one thinks about it... from the moment of our birth, numbers can play a significant role throughout our everyday earthly lives. From the time we wake up in the morning, to the number of kilometers we travel to and from work, to the number of coffees we do or do not consume. From the number of meetings we attend, to the number of reports we complete, to the number of times we check Facebook, and the number of Instagram followers we have, it doesn’t stop. It continues with our telephone numbers, pin numbers, credit card numbers, license number, passport and our social insurance number. And that’s just the beginning of it! Numbers define us in a significant way, and as in life, at times, I feel I’m just (but at the very most) a number.  Life Can Become a Numbers Game. By applying the numbering concept to my work, it becomes as well a commentary on the commoditization of visual art. This rationale is expanded upon in greater detail in a blog post 'Why I incorporate Numbering in my Painting Practice' on my website' ...  www.cliffkearns.com

Cliff Kearns' move to self expression comes after a formidable career working as an illustrator and commissioned painter for high profile publishers and clients such as General Motors, Canadian General Electric, Proctor & Gamble, TD Canada Trust, and 3M Co. 

He has exhibited at Art Expo New York, Park City Utah, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and North Hollywood CA in United States.  Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and his regional communities of London Ontario, St. Thomas and Bayfield in Canada.
