Bill Lowe Gallery is proud to present a breathtaking compilation of new works by internationally-acclaimed French painter Pierre-Marie Brisson. Brisson’s southern debut follows the smashing success of his shows in San Francisco and New York.

Pierre-Marie Brisson was born in Orleans, France in 1955, and works out of his studio in the South of France. Brisson was initially intrigued by art at the tender age of fourteen. Though he worked in a variety of non art positions, he eventually devoted his life to his passion for contemporary art. Brisson studied with painter Bernard Saby during his teenage years, and then settled in Paris in 1979 to study with James Coignard, Antoni Clave, Joan Miro, and Antoni Tapies. These influences are apparent in his painting style, which is often compared to cave painting.

The simplicity of the images used are intended to contrast with the textured elements in his work, to give the impression of being both timeless as well as chic and current. Brisson’s work is held in the private collections of the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, San Francisco Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Jewish Museum, New York George Page Museum, Los Angeles Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris Musee de la Poste, Paris Pushkin Museum, Moscow Musee Faure, haute couture Paris Groupe Cartier, and the Argentina Musee de L’Hospice Saint-Roch, among many others.

“Brisson’s works capture the imagination of an immense audience that is inspired by their aura of European art history conveyed with an invigorated freshness. The works possess a uniformly exquisite topography or surface development that underscores the classical lineage of the imagery in these icons to love and a joie de vivre.”

The philosophical architecture of Bill Lowe Gallery is built upon a reverence for the alchemical nature of artistic expression. Our vision honors the profoundly spiritual nature of visual language and the role it can play in affecting paradigm shifts at both a personal and societal level.

It is with this recognition that we have assembled a world-class stable of artists who intuitively have their fingers on the pulse of the Universe. Their expression is not an ironic or satirical look at the human condition. Instead, the gallery’s program presents powerful, content-driven works that utilize technical mastery and a visual eloquence to transform the human heart and soul at intimate levels.

For our collectors, the gallery is an oasis of beauty. Of civility. Of contemplation. This is coupled with a dynamism informed by a world view rooted in metaphysics, spirituality, philosophy, psychology and biology. Bill Lowe Gallery is a transformative experience that forever enlightens those who experience it. The gallery facilitates interaction between a broad cross-section of our community with an exotic array of artistic voices and languages to amplify and expand an unfolding cultural conversation.

Bill Lowe Gallery has become an institution in our region. We are widely considered the pre-eminent contemporary art gallery in the Southern United States. Our long presence in Los Angeles has fueled a kinetic dialogue between the East and West coasts. We approach the next decade of our mandate with clarity, commitment and excitement.
