Lari Pittman Acquisition

Densely layered with imagery of weapons, architectural schematics, historical portraiture, birds, and molecular biology, Pittman’s new paintings merrily skip across the centuries, connecting the realities of contemporary culture and global upheaval with those of the distant past. The artist’s enduring fascination with surface and ornamentation again comes to life with piercing eloquence in paintings that blend deeply personal iconography with shamanistic insight.
