About

Geometric limited edition etching, hand painted, Abstract of a orange and blue figure inside of a circle by Pierre Brisson (French, b, 1955). "Carborundum Engraving", Brisson uses a multiple technique approach to his etchings. First he engraves the base image on plexi glass, prints this in a press. He then hand paints highlights and fills in colors in the image. He glues the paper to a heavy raw pulp paper. He coats a layer of Carbon Silcate paste to another sheet of paper, once dry he places the engraving and the Carborundum in the press to achieve a deep texture. Each etching is an individual work or art. Signed "Brisson" lower right and "720/750" lower left. Image, 16.5"H x 14.5"L. Presented in a giltwood frame with linen liner and gold trim. Pierre Marie Brisson, a contemporary artist with a studio in the South of France, was born in Orleans, France in 1955. He began to show an interest in painting around the age of 14. Though he worked in a variety of non-art related positions, eventually he acquiesced to his passion and devoted his life to creative endeavors. He met and studied with painter Bernard Saby during his teenage years, and then settled in Paris in 1979 to study under James Coignard, Antoni Clave, Joan Miro, and Antoni Tapies. Brisson's works have often been compared to cave drawings. 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 displayed in the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, San Francisco Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Jewish Museum, New York George Page Museum, Los Angeles Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris Musee de la Poste, Paris Pushkin Museum, Moscow Musee Faure, haute couture Paris Groupe Cartier, and the Argentina Musee de L'Hospice Saint-Roch, among many others. Robert Flynn Johnson, the Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, said of Pierre Brisson: "He creates an art that invites, no, demands repeated viewing over time. His paintings, drawings, and prints, like the best of poetry, cinema, and fine art, ask more questions than they answer."
