James Sterling Pitt’s sculptures are carved and assembled from sheets of wood, each subtly colorful piece is a concrete rendering of a chosen moment in the life of the artist. Pitt’s process first records his experience of a time and place in a drawn sketch, sometimes created on-site. The resulting wood constructions are realized within a very personal system whose format allows subjectivity and impressions to meld with elements (weather, time of day), sensations (scents and music) and associations of the intellect (literature or historical figures.)
