Adam Pitt’s woodcut series, Korporate Culture, depicts the unexpected suffering of the white-collar class in modern culture. Our omnipresent bureaucratic culture - encompassing bank tellers, Madison Avenue advertisers, IT Professionals, and Web designers - demands more output in less time, greater profits at lower costs, and a greater capacity to tolerate stress. Where’s the space to breathe, to get away from the oversight and pressure for more? His subjects are screaming in rage, silenced or choking; sometimes feeling the bosses boot on their neck. Pulling from his own experiences in the corporate world, Pitt utilizes the strong graphic nature of the woodcut process to expressively convey this narrative of the oppressive boss and his victims.
