The Texture of Life

By Theduchess

The texture of life

The paintings of Czech painter Daniel Pitín brim with hazy and interwoven memories: disconnected fragments of things seen, pierced by abstract and timeless thoughts. So many moments are so avidly collected and haphazardly recalled. Yet life somehow coheres even when we cannot tell whether it is bursting apart or falling into place. St Augustine, cavernous halls of memory, vacant depths, living life at the surface–read my piece on Pitín in Chilean art magazine Arte al Limite, in print or online (p. 31-41).

Bonus link: Listen to him speak with infinite calm and acceptance about painting and life in a wonderful interview filmed by Christian Bazant-Hegemark.
