Robert Bissell Hero - The Paintings Of Robert Bissell (Book) price

This is a 140 page, hardbound, coffee table size, featuring over 130 of my paintings and many of the stories behind them. Rather than just a catalog of my recent work, the publisher and I have created a story book based on the Hero's journey as outlined by Joseph Campbell. I consider this a work of art in itself and one that I believe you will be excited to read and share with others. - Robert Bissell

Hero: The Paintings of Robert Bissell is organized according to the construct of Campbell's hero's journey. Each of the 10 chapters—from "Genesis" and "Vision" through "Crossing" and "Initiation" to "Return" and "Elixir"—presents paintings that interpret these archetypal experiences. Bissell's grand and detailed landscapes provide Edenic stages for each scene in the journey.

Carl Little's introduction offers biographical background and explores Bissell's process, motivations, and revelations, and the artist has supplied brief stories for many of the paintings. The path of human experience is joyfully recounted in Hero, illuminated by Bissell's animals, who invite our contemplation as they mirror our own quests, conundrums, and resolutions.
