MISHA BITTLESTON Bittleston is interested in the spiritual and religious realms of human experience he strives to represent these in his art. His paintings often refer to the earlier works of Redon, Moreau and the 18th century Symbolists, and to William Blake. Recent larger scale paintings frequently depict the human figure. Bittleston says, In my art I seek to reflect the essence of what it means to be human, and thus it is not strange that I should use that symbol to which the human being will always respond. ...I look at the world and impose my vision onto it. My art is my vision. For me it is not the world that teaches the imagination but the imagination that teaches the world how to be seen. I try to learn from the imagination itself. It is in the human figure as a multidimensional ...infinitely expressive symbol that I am able to find significance in the world of abstractions. The artist was born in Derbyshire, England, and began to paint in watercolor at a very early age. He studied, learned about art and worked in various media as he grew up in England and later studied in Italy. Bittleston currently lives and paints locally on the San Francisco Peninsula. His work has been included in exhibitions in England, New York, and in the Bay Area. Priscilla Hexter, Curator, Stanford Art Spaces Below: Wall plaque from Stanford exhibition, 1996.
