Landscapes and Seascapes
Pittman, an abstract landscape painter simplifies the landscape around him in coastal Virginia and South Carolina along with in the great plains and high deserts of the American Southwest. His work is featured March thru April and available year round at Atrium Art Gallery in Charleston.
“When I walk by the sea or through canyons, I see form, shape, line, and texture as revealed by light and color. I translate this to canvas using acrylic paint applied intuitively and moved around with scrapers, knives, fingers, and sticks. My work is not site specific but I do relate to colors and conditions. I paint my remembered impressions and attempt to create the mystery of ancient places and the passage of time, weather, and man. Edges, texture, and surface are important elements of my work which I strive to be spontaneous, luminous, spare, and deep.”
