Toby Sisson

I appreciated Sisson's work most of all in the MFA Thesis show. Particular pieces that I liked were Submerged One and Two, and Temple. The interplay between flat depth and texture was very nice. The works were contemplative, encouraged as much by their titles as the works themselves. In considering all of Sisson's works it seems to me like there is a lot to do in the medium, and I wonder where and how far Sisson will take them. What inspirations does the artist draw from, is there a lineage that Sisson attempts to follow? Sissons work provoked me to dwell in front of the pieces, and to reflect on their nature.
