David Kessler’s paintings are exquisitely paradoxical, the flat painted surface being contrasted against the striking illusion of depth and space. Using a perfected technique in the photo-realist tradition developed over the past twenty-five years, he has created a series of spectacular waterscape paintings that incorporate realistic imagery, painted over a surface of abraded and polished aluminum. This combination of hybrid elements forces the viewer to shift their perception to accommodate the incongruity of light being reflected from the metal surface, while at the same time being absorbed by the painted areas. This reinforces the strange visual perplexity of the paintings that are at the same time realistic and holographic.
