Making art in New York City since 1976, I have lived in Brooklyn continuously since 1986, and currently rent a dedicated art studio for painting, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I paint on canvas and paper, all sizes, mostly abstract. My art practice includes painting, watercolors, drawing, collage, and mono prints.

In 2018, I showed large abstract paintings and paintings on paper at NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, and was included in a group show in 2021.


In January 2020, I showed new paintings in a solo exhibition at Art of Our Century gallery, Greenwich Village, New York. “New Paintings” was the inaugural exhibition and showcased large color abstractions from 2019. A large diptych, “Breaking Violet” was included in the group show “Fresh Paint” curated by John Gagné of Gagne Contemporary at Art of Our Century gallery in February 2020. The gallery was subsequently closed in March 2020, due to the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic.


In October 2023, my painting "Aqua Light" was included in an exhibition "Object Matter", curated by Scott Bennett at Caldwell Gallery in Hudson, NY.



Jeffrey Kurland (b.1952) received a BFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Michigan, and an MFA in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan.
