Adam Pitt is a Woodcut Printmaker who spent decades navigating life as a corporate manager for a Fortune 500 company while he simultaneously worked as an undercover artist. Pitt works in two distinct series; Nudes and Korporate Culture. Both series observe the muse, becoming a narrative for his own work-life dichotomy. The exaggerated features of the muses and the simple yet bold color sensibility are inspired by expressionist artists like Schiele and Munch as well as Non-Western wood sculptures. Highlighting the woodgrain of each print emphasizes the importance of the material and acts to ground the image in its environment.
