About

acrylic on brushed aluminum One of the most powerful tools an artist possesses is an ability to bridge the gap between what is considered real and what is illusion. This ability to alter or enhance reality is the very crux of what an artist is all about, and their success at attaining this is usually the defining element as to their stature in the field, as either an abstract or realist painter. Occasionally a painter is able to combine these two distinct disciplines and create an art form, which holds a viewer’s attention by balancing the paradox of the flat painted surface with the illusion of depth and space. For over twenty years, David Kessler followed a Photo-Realist tradition, often depicting the Arizona desert landscape where he lives. These highly complex and consummately crafted paintings have drawn the attention of collectors and curators from all over the country. His work is included in the public collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Minnesota Museum of American Art, IBM, Prudential, McDonald’s, AT&T, Clorox, and others.
