Schissel was also Canada’s 2009 recipient of the Brucebo Foundation Fine Arts Award and Residency in Visby, Sweden.

Schissel has received Grants and Awards from the Canada Council of the Arts, the City of Ottawa, Ontario Arts Council, the Myers Foundation of West Virginia, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. STATEMENT My past large-scale paintings and drawings confront anxieties about the role of painting/drawing in the information age, responding to a constant technological presence in a data-driven, media saturated culture. I subscribe to digital processes to reappraise the language of painting/drawing, lending its analog form of expression relevance within an overarching new-media environment. I examine how abstract painting/drawing can be coaxed out of being ‘old media’ with the application of digital language to the painterly field. The surface of the work acts as a lens through which to translate current understandings of space: Embedding modes of digital representation such as pixels, clusters, loops, and linear arrays within the material specificity of acrylic paint and drawing materials, opens up an arena of vague yet familiar spatial emulations of digital environments, and forms a hybrid abstract language. Combining the analogue continuous nature of the painted brushstroke with algorithmic digital processes, although hand-made, my work often takes on the look of a digitized Abstract Expressionism.
