Daniel Pitin produces large, visually complex paintings, dense with imagery and subtle references to films and canonical works of art, and sometimes containing embedded bits of newspaper, lace, and paper towels. Pitin’s dark color palette, solitary, ethereal figures, and surreal structures, which seem to both reveal and hide their occupants, imbue his works with moodiness and mystery. He describes his paintings as fragments of stories or dreams, explaining that through them he explores the “personal and public memory of the place where I live.”
