Michael Kinsley (born 1947) is an American artist in Colorado whose primary subjects are Western Colorado and the SE Utah desert. He paints his smaller pieces on site. Larger landscapes are based on his outside sketches. Most of his abstracts are improvisations on interesting textures and potent shapes in Nature.
Since 2018, Kinsley has moved into fluidic abstracted landscapes influenced by Canadian artists Emily Carr and Franklin Carmichael.
Kinsley: “Each of us has felt reluctant to leave a magnificent place — of finally turning and walking away, but stopping again to look back. I paint and sketch those moments for their deep sense of joy and peace.”
