The artistic journey of Pierre Marie Brisson started out with an abundance of raw talent and a stubborn sense of determination thirty-two years ago. In mounting his first exhibition, at his own expense, in his hometown of Orleans, Brisson announced to himself and the world that his was to be a creative life of action rather than a patient, passive career waiting for recognition that might never come. Portrait 1978 It is not enough to make a wine; you must also have others willing to eagerly drink it. Brisson, like many creative artists, was blessed in his early years by having his art intoxicate the minds of experienced and thoughtful collectors and dealers who saw great promise in his present and future.

Brisson’s early work displayed vibrant surface gesture and form that traced its roots back to the stained glass fragmentation of Georges Rouault, the playful imagery of Paul Klee, and the automatism of Pierre Courtin, Bram Van Velde, and the Cobra group that included Asger Jorn, Karel Appel, and Pierre Alechinsky. This is where his art began but not where it was to evolve to in his maturity. It is clear that Pierre Marie Brisson is a representational artist. Like Picasso and Miró before him, Brisson’s imagery can stray far afield, often bordering on abstraction.
