Large highly coloured abstract paintings on paper evoke mechanised movement in urban landscapes, the passage of time and the horizontal structures of high-rise and modern constructions. Smaller works on wood follow the contours of the medium (taken from doors and window frames in themselves references to housing) and create bright small delights.

Edinburgh painter Bissett, taught art in Scottish schools for many years and his twenty-five years of experience show in these old and new works – all first shown here at Summerhall.
