Michael Kessler is an accomplished American artist, currently working and living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His well-known works utilize thin layers of transparent acrylic to capture different abstract scenery in nature.
Kessler's nature-based paintings draw inspiration from a variety of landscapes, including deserts, farmlands and oceans. In each biomorphic work, the process of scraping, smoothing, sanding and pouring creates aspects of texture, smoothness, shadow and light to showcase the complexity of nature.
According to Kessler, "I wanted to peal away the surface so that I could better understand its inner workings.”
