Sao Paulo, Brazil-based artist Thiago Rocha Pitta’s (b. 1980) temporal and sensitive body of work depicts interventions with the environment from his native Brazil. Through watercolors, photographs, sculpture, and video, Rocha Pitta focuses on small yet emotive elements of the natural world that are simultaneously ominous and melancholy. Driven by a preoccupation with the passage of time, particularly in natural settings, Rocha Pitta often manipulates the pace of his work, confronting his viewer with quiet, curious introspection and an open-ended sense of longing.
