Robert Bissell is an important artist here at Royal Street Fine Art in Aspen. The animal spirituality created in his paintings is explained below by Bissell.
“Imaginary Realist Robert Bissell creates a completely different atmosphere from our daily experience, inviting us to learn more about ourselves. In his paintings the world of animals is a mirror for human existence, self-definition and reflection. These are not mere children’s tales – quite the contrary. Bissell’s work causes us to reflect on the environment, life, death, renewal and the stages of transition – departing from the safety of family, and making our way in the world.”
