Robert Bissell: The Swimmer
Robert Bissell (American, b. England 1952) The Swimmer, 2010
Drawing inspiration from the animal kingdom, artist Robert Bissell's paintings transcend mere portraits of bears and other creatures. Instead, they serve as allegories, reflecting the universal challenges and discoveries encountered on life's journey.
Bissell, originally from England, immersed himself in the world of animals on his family's farm. After pursuing photography at the Royal College of Art in London and subsequently relocating to America, he spent a decade in the corporate world before taking a courageous leap to establish his own catalog company. However, driven by his passion for art, he ultimately chose to follow his heart and dedicate himself to creating art full-time.
In the artwork presented here, a swimming bear encounters a friendly and curious school of mysterious fish, symbolizing the enchanting interplay between different species. This visual narrative, where one species captivates another, unfolds as a mesmerizing scene within the 500 pieces of this jigsaw puzzle.
