CASA TRIÂNGULO PRESENTS BOTH COMFORTING AND DISTURBING ARTWORKS BY THIAGO ROCHA PITTA
Nature, darkness and portals to other posible worlds are all present in this artist’s oeuvre.
Thiago Rocha Pitta’s diverse practice is connected to a deep fascination with the subtle transformations of the world around him - the slow erosion and alteration of desert terrain, the descent of a fog and the fluctuations of underwater formations.
His installations, videos, and paintings have captured the vibrancy of a living planet by training the viewer's eye on the slow changes of materials, the physical progressions of miniscule particles of a land, and the sudden shifts in the weather.
