Musical themes are often his subject, giving his work its remarkable sense of harmony and rhythm. Nissan refers to his own work as ñAbstract Lyricism.î Translating the feelings and emotions of music and color into the visual arts; he holds together his compositions by their likeness to tonal and harmonic qualities of music. A similar feel pervades his engravings, which usually stem from his collages. He began exploring this print medium in the early 1980Ís in Paris, and quickly became as masterful at engraving his visual music on metal plates as at piecing it together in collage.
