Franklin Bowles Galleries Pierre Marie Brisson April 2018 Exhibition

APRIL EXHIBITION

Pierre Marie Brisson
Tracing the Rhythm of Time
April 2018
New York Gallery


Pierre Marie Brisson's recent paintings blend painterly marks and collage techniques. His distinct multilayered surfaces and ensembles of repeated organic and mythical motifs carry on from previous works, now congealing in a pictorial language in full bloom.

The dense ground of Brisson's canvases peels away as if the viewer is brushing leaves from a forest floor, revealing new archaeological information with every tear or rip. While the faded colors and torn wallpaper evoke nostalgia and memory, they also produce a violent sense of the "now."

Brisson's paintings reveal the ephemeral quality of being human and the fragile language through which humans claim to document their experience as humans. His work chronicles the underlying pulse of art through life—its ability to recall our past, reflect our present, and envision our future.
