Artist Statement

My work ,as the totem format may indicate, digs deep withing certain traditional forms of art. Ancient cave art forms a space orientation not dissimilar to the space of a temple or of a cathedral. The sculptural direction in my work establish and reflect a felt environment and evoke a staged space. Like columns in a temple or cathedral, they make space for a kind of thought. My totems reflect space. They are about making viable the invisible that surround them. A single fragment of sculpture like a single Greek column makes visible the wonder of a whole building. This wonder is the space, the building block of scared thoughts not just about making visable the invisible but emphasizing that which is not seen as most important and without boundaries. In fact this obelisk, totem like format condenses and implodes, drawing in the invisible and showing for a brief moment the visible cathedral of natural forms within a new pictorial format without boundaries and briefly holding time still. www.richardpitts.com ...
