About the Artist
In order to create images, Pitt spent a lot of time viewing and drawing art in museums. He uses the art as a departure point for his own work. Much of the viewing and drawing is of non-Western art; sculptures and objects from Oceania, Asia, Africa, South America and indigenous cultures. Many of the works “I see deal with power, religious practices and human dynamics, all familiar to my experiences in the corporate work world.” Pitt fills many books with his drawn observations.
Pitt’s final products from his studies are woodcut prints. He uses different types of wood for different techniques and qualities including poplar, mahogany, cedar, maple, ash and birch plywood. Multiple blocks are used to create different colors and are run multiple times through the printing press. Many different types of art from different times in history have influenced Pitt. He finds the simplified elegant form and intensity and honesty of African and Oceanic sculpture to be a large influence. He is also a great admirer of German Expressionism.
