Pitt Brandenburger is an unclassifiable artist, ignoring fashions and trends. In the serenity of his atelier, he breathes, caresses, loves wood, respects it and seeks to extract the substantial marrow. With the preferred material of oak, walnut, cherry, maple among others, combined with cast iron or bronze, the artist fill the exhibition spaces with the cohort of submissive guards, kinds of anthropomorphic tabernacles sheltering within their symbolic objects, precious and vibrant stones like souls.
His superb works resonate as an invitation to contemplation and introspection. Mysticism and esotericism enter into symbiosis in this production which tends to lift the veil on the mysteries of life and creation. From the outset, what we apprehend are the perfect execution of the pieces, the polishing skill, the assembly of a stunning finesse and intelligence. Certainly, the sculptures challenge us with their aesthetics, but to penetrate the artist's universe, you have to grasp the symbolic nature of his work.
Each tree is chosen according to its symbolic meaning, especially in Celtic mythology. Oak, for example, has evoked strength and sovereignty since antiquity, while walnut is a symbol of regeneration and energy.
