ABOUT
SIT (Amsterdam,1976)

After working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Sit decided to stop this madness in 2008 and went back to head and handcraft to slice away the fat.

Sit has created several series since:



HAIIRO (2012)

Where the calm surroundings provide more opportunity for decision making, rather than being driven by the fast moving winds of change.




NOIR (2011)

With ‘Noir’ Sit returns to his bold black & whites, examining the troubled relation between the animal kingdom and mankind even closer. This time around his work is focused on the magnificent beauty of the beast and the way it is used to serve the vanity that is intricate to humanity.

The result is a haunting series that is simultaneously sexy and morbid. The sensual textures of fur and feathers are juxtaposed with pale animal skulls and soft female curves to illustrate the malicious blackness gnawing away at the edges of our sense of beauty. Sit’s latest work uses the wild strokes of his brush to explore how utilizing furs and skins as luxurious haute couture is essentially living with death.
