Daniel Pitin




Daniel Pitin choses as the subject of his paintings film stills not for the story they tell but for the gestures and expressions of its protagonists - movement and gestures are what interest Pitin and more often than not these are pained and violent. Our reactions to these are not ones of discomfort however but of attraction - the use of a refined, subtle color palette and gently expressive brush stroke lend these actions the adjectives beautiful, elegant. The movements no longer express a difficult emotion but are seen more for their purely physical traits, their movements in space and their unquestionable possession of the scene.
