Parisian Painter Pierre-Marie Brisson Channels the “Mood of Matisse” to Southern Sensibilities with Atlanta Debut on 04-04-14 at Bill Lowe Gallery
Bill Lowe Gallery is proud to present a breathtaking compilation of new works by internationally-acclaimed French painter Pierre-Marie Brisson. Brisson’s southern debut follows the smashing success of his shows in San Francisco and New York and opens on Friday, 04-04-14, from 6PM to 9 PM.
Pierre-Marie Brisson was born in Orleans, France in 1955, and works out of his studio in the South of France. Brisson was initially intrigued by art at the tender age of fourteen. Though he worked in a variety of non art positions, he eventually devoted his life to his passion for contemporary art. Brisson studied with painter Bernard Saby during his teenage years, and then settled in Paris in 1979 to study with James Coignard, Antoni Clave, Joan Miro, and Antoni Tapies. These influences are apparent in his painting style, which is often compared to cave painting.
The simplicity of the images used are intended to contrast with the textured elements in his work, to give the impression of being both timeless as well as chic and current. Brisson’s work is held in the private collections of the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, San Francisco Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Jewish Museum, New York’s George Page Museum, Paris’ Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris Musee de la Poste, Paris Pushkin Museum, Moscow’s Musee Faure, haute couture Paris Groupe Cartier, and the Argentina Musee de L’Hospice Saint-Roch, among many others.
Prominent gallerist Bill Lowe of Bill Lowe Gallery comments that “Brisson’s works capture the imagination of an immense audience that is inspired by their aura of European art history conveyed with an invigorated freshness. The works possess a uniformly exquisite topography or surface development that underscores the classical lineage of the imagery in these icons to love and a joie de vivre.”
