The artist and painter Pierre Marie Brisson in video
I am a painter and sailor. I live and work in the South of France on the Mediterranean. My boat is my workshop open to all winds, to all horizons.
The paper is my medium, cut, painted, folded and marouflaged on canvas where triumph the tones of the South, without degradation or transition. Pure color is my emotional language. They formalize living beings; migratory birds, butterflies, fishes human silhouettes and the southern flora whose acanthus ubiquitous in the history of art, sun plant, nymph in mythology, love of art in the language of flowers.
A film by Gilles Bastianelli
In this short film we meet the contemporary French painter and get a tour of his studio in Aigues-Morte, located in the Camargue region of France. A tête-à-tête with the artist set in the coastal environment, which surrounds and inspires him. Tour the place where Pierre Marie Brisson creates his latest bodies of work, which then travel the world as subjects of various exhibitions. Take a walk with the artist who shares an intimate moment with us. Music by Mike Marlin, Brisson’s friend and musician.
“In Orleans, Brisson stirs our emotions with his latest paintings, where creased blemished whites shed new light on the shapes and figures of the past, producing a subtly transparent effect, and allowing us access to the intimate world of a painter who is able to reach a certain level of serenity and sensory calm.”
- Gilles Bastianelli, curator
