Brian Kershisnik is the most uncommon of artists. In a culture that applauds the new, the shocking and the transient, Kershisnik focuses his rare talent on central and enduring human values. In the tiny town of Kanosh, Utah, an isolated community of fewer than 200 families, he paints profoundly moving images of people in the quiet but important moments of their lives. Kershisnik: Painting From Life features 100 of the artist's paintings in large-format, full-colour reproductions. Two exceptional authors provide commentary for each piece. Leslie Norris describes Kershisnik and his work, revealing the thought and effort behind each piece, while Mark Magleby presents a "portrait of the artist". Magleby is a keen interpreter of Kershisnik's work; as he has written, "The paintings of Brian Kershisnik offer insight into a personal space echoing our own experience a landscape where life's vicissitudes sometimes delay out well-meaning ambitions". Kershisnik: Painting from Life is the third monograph in Guild Publishing's series on exceptional contemporary artists. Earlier volumes focused on glass artist Josh Simpson and metal artist Thomas Mann.
