"A little girl in a white summer hat and dress clutches her teddy. Her gaze goes off frame. Something has caught her attention and, for a split second, she is uncertain whether it is threatening or entertaining. The painting catches this hair-trigger instant. As in so many of Thierry Bisch¹s paintings, there is no environment as such in the background, no familiar anchorage. Instead, a plain coat of weathered duck-egg blue through which an earthy colour peeps from underneath. It is like corroded copper or the wall of a Tuscan palazzo, a sense of gentle chromatic layering, of palimpsest, a patina of time. Part of the portrait¹s impact draws on this sure sense of the emotional valency of colour: the warm orangey skin that advances; the cool blue background tone that recedes; the pristine white that hovers somewhere in between. And, just as communist poster art ransacks the ritualised poses, sumptuous colours and rich jewel-like settings of religious iconography, Thierry¹s portraits have an ethereal, devotional aura about them. They inscribe themselves into a new, secular vocabulary of iconolatry.
