Lari Pittman

A painter known for his bold use of color, geometric forms, and layering of diverse images, Lari Pittman has created a body of work that is immediate and singular. Drawing on popular iconography, commercial advertising, the art historical tradition of the still life, and cultural symbols, Pittman composes dense and boldly colorful paintings that reference the medium's rich history while simultaneously emerging as something that is entirely unique. Combining patterns, shapes, and figurative elements, Pittman's paintings reflect on conceptions of time, mortality, beauty, and suffering. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions at institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Arts in St. Louis, the ICA London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Hammer Art Museum, and in significant group shows such as the 2003 Venice Biennale, Documenta X, and the 1993, 1995, and 1997 Whitney Biennials.
