Bradley Pitts’ work speaks to loss without physical absence—related to both the precarities of the current moment as well as his experience growing up around addiction. His materials (whether found, purchased, made, harvested, or acquired for personal use) are employed as residue—of systems and cultures, of thoughts and beliefs, of lives lived and actions performed. The resulting sculptures are pile-ups of physical and mental forms in which the histories and associations of his materials are forced to meet and grapple with one another, producing moments of harmony, conflict, and/or contradiction. The internal tensions are often emotional, funny, serious, and ironic at the same time.
Thank you everyone who joined us for the opening event!
