JSP JBB is the first exhibition featuring James Sterling Pitt at Blunk Space and includes nine new works by Pitt and four sculptures by JB Blunk from the 1970s and 80s. This exhibition is produced in collaboration with Ratio 3 and presented jointly with their exhibition James Sterling Pitt: Ways, January 20 – March 4 and a collaborative presentation at FOG Art Fair between Ratio 3 and Nonaka-Hill.

Pitt’s new series is sculpted from clay, a material he began to experiment with after returning to New Mexico and beginning to collaborate with his stepfather. He explains the tactility and quietness of clay aligned with his drawing practice, and he appreciated how quickly he could remove information from and carve into the material. The new series features one wall mounted work alongside eight freestanding sculptures. The objects are manifestations of both his daily experiences and memories, thresholds into both inner and outer realities.

Pitt explains he kept the JB Blunk catalog open as he worked on this series, “The catalog was like a window into his world and allowed there to be a conversation with him. I looked closely at how he handled form, glaze, and brushstroke. As I have transitioned from wood to clay, observing how his work changes between material was a big influence, specifically how he changed form and language with material and shifts in scale.”

Please join us for an opening reception Saturday, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm at Blunk Space in downtown Point Reyes for a chance to preview the exhibition and meet with the artist and curator.

Presented in collaboration with Ratio 3
