Adam Pitt’s woodcut series, Nudes, is a sensual observation of feminine beauty. Influenced by expressionist artists like Schiele and Munch as well as Aboriginal and Indigenous art, Pitt merges these styles to create portraits of a contemporary goddess-like figure. Through exaggerated features and by utilizing wood as his printmaking matrix, Pitt references femininity and fertility, as seen in non-western wood sculptures.

Pitt’s handling of line and color express the importance of the muse. Like his expressionist counterparts, the muse controls the composition - influencing the type of marks and colors chosen to set the mood of her environment, mostly tranquil and serene.
