Join Butters Gallery for a talk with nationally recognized artist Michael Kessler. Kessler will discuss the work in his exhibition New Works on view through May 27. Known for his nature-based abstractions, Kessler states:
Questions of how and why nature looked the way it did began to drive my work. I wanted to peel away the surface so that I could better understand its inner workings. I began to sensitize myself to the processes that were responsible for the appearance of the natural world—like sedimentation and erosion. Gradually, my painting process took on the characteristics of these natural processes. Nature is my model and transformation is my subject matter.
