Kessler Exhibition > "Bending the Curve", Gallery Bienvenu, New Orleans, August/September 2011

This new collection of acrylic paintings by Michael Kessler is characterized by the merger of organic, meandering, linear structure with thick slabs of white or slightly tinted neutral grid-like structures. These works are actually recordings of the mental processes which include decision-making and revisions. What we are left with in the end is a carefully constructed and highly-edited visual puzzle filled with mystery and intrigue. The works contain naturalistic and architectural elements that, through careful observation, reveal a delicate balancing of opposites.
