Michael Kessler's paintings reflect his deep sensitivity to the landscape surrounding his rural Pennsylvania home. About his work, Kessler has stated:

"These paintings are about nature in evolution, but they are also about painting in evolution. To me painting is a metaphor for nature, and a way to watch change. I am painting the internal dynamics of nature, the energy."
