Canadian interdisciplinary artist Kyle Herranen studied Classical Animation at Sheridan College (1997) before earning a BFA at York University (2004) and receiving his MFA from the University of Regina (2008).
Kyle produces a range of work including: installation, paintings, performance and sculptural objects. His work is invested in notions and concepts of material. Using materials as signifiers, he subtly interrogates hierarchical and dichotomous categories, including urban and rural, public and private, real and representational, masculine and feminine, modern and contemporary.
Kyle was included in Mind the Gap! (Dunlop Art Gallery), a National touring exhibition featuring prominent emerging artists. In the fall of 2012 Galleries West named Kyle one of Canada’s “Who’s Who of Collectable Artists”. Herranen has exhibited both provincially and nationally, and his art is featured in numerous corporate, private and public collections across Canada and the United States including the Mosaic Corporation, the City of Regina, and the Dunlop Art Gallery.
Kyle currently lives and works in Regina Saskatchewan and is represented by Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon, Gurevich Fine Art in Winnipeg, and SLATE Fine Art Gallery in Regina.
