Statement

Paul Kessling’s abstract oil paintings pulsate with raw Promethean energy. Whether taking painterly bearings amid the heft and shift of wind-slammed storms or delicately calibrating the impression of light patinating a cloud-mottled sea, his wet-in-wet technique and lyrical brush strokes capture the elemental struggles of our external and internal landscapes.

Kessling trained as a sculptor at the Royal College of Art where he worked with Sir Eduardo Paolozzi. He is a modern painter forming paintings with the same sculptural discipline required of the three dimensional form, but in a two dimensional space. Paul Kessling uses his own distinctive painterly structures, stacks of stripes or fields of moving paint, to generate  a distillation of the well-observed - a rewriting or new translation in paint.
