Artist statement:

Manuel Bisson creates his images from a reflection on colour, blurring, vibration and the scale of multiple perception. His language from drawing and painting operates both through digital culture and in the artist's studio. The images he creates act as interfaces between the real and the improbable in a transpictural space border between video games, painting, drawing and fantasy.

For him, a drawing always remains a landscape. The airbrush rendering of certain forms found in his images, recall the culture of tag and street graffiti. The world of concrete, the monolithic forms of Bauhaus architecture or Brutalism have always informed his approach. But beyond this surface language, the environment, nature and the animal world remain at the heart of his concerns.

In his current work, Manuel Bisson uses different printing materials and methods to bias and foil his own knowledge of images. Oversized, reduced or transferred to new materials, Bisson endeavors to migrate his images to new realities of perception. He summons the public to enter a spatial alchemy bordering science fiction, the occult and a magical and poetic formalism.
