Bears by Bissell 2020 Wall Calendar
As a child growing up on a farm, Robert Bissell (American, b. England 1952) immersed himself in the world of animals. His paintings of contemplative bears and other creatures in idyllic landscapes invite us to step into their world to see ourselves, once again, as part of nature. “Animals used to be involved with humans as messengers with magical functions,” Bissell says. “I wanted to restore their role and give them a new voice.” His creatures are fond of standing on two legs, as they are particularly good mirrors of human existence. Their unusual depth of character prompts contemplation of life’s transitions and mysteries. Pomegranate also publishes his work in the books Spirit: The Art of Robert Bissell
(2019) and Hero: The Paintings of Robert Bissell
