Kessler > 7"x9" soft cover available for $28.00


Here is the new and improved edition of my book which is 7"x9" (soft cover) available now for $28.00 and also available in the 8"x11" hard cover but for almost $60.00. I keep learning better ways to design these things and what to avoid. Images need to be very very well-focused and high resolution.

Kessler > New Earth/Sage works












Here is an image of a new group of paintings I call the Earth/Sage works. They are characterized by sage-colored plank forms superimposed over loose brushwork which stems from plant growth, branches, and vines.

“You have all that exotica, these wonderful restaurants and top-notch galleries,” said Michael Kessler, an artist who lives in Santa Fe but recently had his first show in Paia. “I don’t know any other place like it.”

Kessler I & II by Matthew Chase-Daniel

These two photographs were made by my dear friend Matthew Chase-Daniel. Matthew is an artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is currently working on a series of new photographs taken in various artist's studios. The thing I like about this series is that they are simultaneously Art and Documentation. To view more of works from Matthew's new portrait series visit his site >>>> Matthew Chase-Daniel.
