Thiago Rocha Pitta, PIPA Prize 2012 finalist, is now represented by Casa Triângulo, from São Paulo. The artist was already part of Galeria Millan, A Gentil Carioca , Andersen’s Contemporary and Marianne Boesky Gallery.
Thiago Rocha Pitta began exhibiting his works in 2001, with outdoor interventions. Since the beginning his work seeks an intimate relationship with nature, where it is possible to say nature is a co-author. Through watercolours, photographs, sculptures and video, Rocha Pitta focuses on small yet emotive elements of the natural world that are simultaneously ominous and melancholic, always searching in the language the poetic state of the matter and its mutation. Driven by a preoccupation with the passage of time, particularly in the natural settings, Rocha Pitta often manipulates the pace of his work, confronting his viewer with a quiet and curious introspection, and an open-ended sense of longing.
