Michael Doerksen is a visual artist and musician originally from Victoria, BC where he obtained a Fine Arts Diploma from Camosun College, then completed a BFA in sculpture and photography and an MFA in sculpture from Concordia University in Montreal. His work has evolved as an continuing sculptural treatment of the facts of objects in space and the fictions that pervade them. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, both independently and as a member of the video/performance based art collective The Discriminating Gentlemen's Club. Doerkson was the lead guitarist for Sunset Rubdown which released four LPs, two EPs and toured internationally before disbanding in 2009. Represented by Galerie Lilian Rodriguez in Montreal, Doerksen currently lives in Banff, Alberta where he works at The Banff Centre as the Sculpture Facilitator for Visual + Digital Arts.
