Imaginary Realist Robert Bissell creates a completely different atmosphere from our daily experience, inviting us to learn more about ourselves. In his paintings, the world of animals is a mirror for human existence, self-definition and reflection. Bissell’s work causes us to reflect on the environment, life, death, renewal and the stages of transition - departing from the safety of family, and making our way in the world.
He regularly exhibits in museums and galleries across the United States and Europe. Bissell hopes his paintings appeal to the intellectual child in us, reminding us of the mythic and universal human values in the tradition of
the great heroic quest stories. His work encourages us to reflect on nature, the roads we travel, and the choices we make along the way. Artist living and working in San Francisco, CA, United States.
