Henri Plisson was born in Omaha, Nebraska in the late 1930's. He attended the University of Omaha and the University of Southern California where he obtained his MFA. Trying to explain his kind of impressionism, Plisson says, "When you look at things you tend to focus on something. It's hard to focus on this whole scene at once. The rest is there, it's not defined and that which is not defined is what you paint. I am painting a visual echo of what I see.'
Henri Plisson's technique is intuitive, and together with his extraordinary sense of color, he creates vibrant and radiant images, which have become even more intense through his feeling of warmth, and element Plisson incorporates into all of his compositions. Serigraphs, as well as oils, by this modern American Impressionist master are currently represented in many important corporate and private collections.
