Marcia Pitch: About Face
January 10 – March 5, 2018

Marcia Pitch has been focused on the bizarre and disturbing throughout her artistic practice. About Face explores this fascination through the deconstruction and reconstruction of images. This series brings forth a mixture of feelings deep in the gut: anxiety and repulsion, but also intrigue and delight. Through this lens, the disguise in the quotidian is revealed and acts to push our understanding of how truth and madness exist around us in our everyday lives. (Text by Maeve Hanna)

Marcia Pitch’s work has spanned four decades, including installation art, assemblage, and collage. Graduating in Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba in the late 60s she went on to do graduate work at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Pitch had long been concerned with social issues, and while parenting she began her engagement with recycling the materials around her into art — then toys and household objects. While continuing to draw on everyday materials, Pitch’s more recent work in collage evokes body politics, genetic manipulation, and imagines a drastically accelerated pace of evolution shaped by pollution and climate change.
