When Robert Bissell isn’t painting bears, he paints rabbits, butterflies, rats, kangaroos, dragonflies, and a host of other animals. His paintings are large, dreamy, playful, allegorical meditations on the experiences of these animals and, by extension, of human animals. The four paintings presented in this joyful set of notecards will connect you to the natural world, offering an understanding that we humans are on an equal plane with bears when it comes to inhabiting Earth.

In Robert Bissell’s magical realism paintings, animals are a mirror for human existence, self-definition, and reflection. Bissell grew up on a farm in the English countryside, immersed in a world of animals and literature, and he incorporates both in his art and writings. His explorations of zoomorphism—portraying humans as non-humans—prompt us to ponder the environment, death and renewal, the stages of transition, and the mystery of life. He invokes a sense of peace and harmony in his allegorical paintings and dreamy landscapes, and continually investigates the nature of spirit. He divides his time between London and San Francisco and exhibits regularly in the UK and the US.
I love my Bear cards. Bissell captured the essence and Bear spirit. So happy with my purchase.
