I am...
A small agallery located just south of Chelsea in the Meat Packing District. Originally CKFA from Brooklyn New York, the Leo Kesting Gallery started in 2003 and developed an aggressive campaign to introduce new figurative artists to collectors and art supports. Leo Kesting offers the art viewing public an opportunity to see forthcoming talents in an intimate setting where new undiscovered cutting-edge artists are exposed to the contemporary art scene. In this way, we present our collectors with an off-the-beaten-path approach to acquiring artwork for our minds and culture.

The gallery is located at 812 Washington St at the corner of Gansevoort in Manhattan's Meat Packing District. A, C, E, or L train to 8th Ave and 14th Street or 1,2,3 train to 14th Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 11am until 7pm.

Diane Dwyer's quiet, subtle paintings of birds, storm clouds and underwater scenes give a serene calm as a backdrop to the tumultuous storms through which we endure. As a painter her works are enigmatic. Her use of color, line and perspective create an image that our eye is easily caught in and spun from one side of the canvas to the other not unlike a leaf caught in a current.

In this collection expect to see a consortium of Diane's repertoire, from early paintings of bird portraits to her well known storm cloud abstracts and birds as they are caught inside of them. As well as underwater images such as a 1940's battleship in its submerged grave after atomic testing.

"Dwyer's first solo show at the gallery featured the signature 'dramatic oils of splay-winged birds sideswiped by tumultuous weather ... a true delight.' (Village Voice Best of 2006), as well as lovely skewed perspectives of skies with wires, cornices and other seemingly banal objects teasing us from outside the center of the picture, leaving space and time for contemplation of their meeting with the "divine" and timeless sky-scapes with which they were paired. The new work is looser, and we think "deeper" both literally and otherwise." -Brook Bartlett
