Robert Bissell Dream

Robert Bissell

75 Signed & Numbered Giclee Canvas
18" x 36"


Recently I have embarked on a series of paintings that explore the idea of scale
and gigantism. I find the questions that arise in creating the images to be interesting
and more complex than might be imagined. Giants have shown up in mythology,
folklore and modern literature as either quite bad beings or as "gentle giants".

Same goes for small beings, although to a lesser extent. Either way they are
generally depicted as being of a different nature. Pictorially I realized that when
combining different sized bears I was not always sure whether I was depicting
normal sized bears with dwarf sized bears or normal sized bears with giant bears.
This aspect I have decided to exploit so that we, as viewers are also unsure.
This painting depicts a bear apparently waking up but I leave it to the viewer
to decide who is having the dream.
