For his and his diggers: a collection of the past, 2000, pp. 4-5

Calgary: Truck, 2000

A mini-retrospective of the talented, multi-faceted artist Kenneth Doren. The exhibition displayed works from the three (3) major fields that Doren has worked in. Paintings and posters, video and video installation and musical composition. Doren's vaguely disturbing combination of childlike approaches and adult themes exhibits a playful ignoring and breaking of the rules. Major themes prevalent in his work are death and faith and the connection to technology. Doren and his work embody experimentation, investigation, optimism, collaboration and always joy.
