Mariella Bisson, THE STREAM OF MEMORY, Oil & mixed media on linen, 38 x 60 inches.
Upon seeing Mariella's highly textural landscapes, we just knew they would resonate with our collectors! The artist's process invloves painting watercolors en plein air and having those works become the origin of her collage-based oil paintings. What we didn't know, was that Mariella would love this region so much, that she would be inspired to visit waterfalls around western North Carolina time and again, capturing the colors and geometry of our beautiful area. Collectors have fallen in love with her aesthetic and we have placed works around the country and even beyond our borders. Congratulations to our dear friend for her immense success and selling out her recent solo show with us! We are honored to be her representation!
