David Kessler

Another artist I just happened to stumble upon (not using the website) while walking back from Navy Pier in Chicago is David Kessler. He is being shown in the Ogilvie/Pertl Gallery and I recommend that anyone in that are go and see his paintings. I like that he uses aluminum canvas, because not many would traditionally think of that material as a canvas. I would like to take objects and make people view them differently, so he is an innovator for me. It seems like a genius idea to put paint on a metal canvas with a metal brush. The way he makes use of light off the metal is inspirational. I hope I have an idea like this someday.
