“Joe Gitterman has sculpted for 50 years. Yet it wasn’t until he retired from Wall Street that he devoted full-time attention to his art. Since his first exhibition at a local Connecticut gallery in 2011, Joe Gitterman’s career has taken off. His work has been bought by both private and corporate collections and he has received commissions from Robert Couturier, Norwegian Cruise Lines, The Riverside Building in London, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed Arris building in Washington D.C. and the Four Season's Hotel in Houston, among others.
Sculpting maquettes in copper, wax or acrylic, Gitterman chooses to cast in bronze or fabricate in stainless steel. His work ranges from intimate hand size pieces to dramatic work well beyond human scale. The surface texture and color of each piece accentuates either dynamic movement or sensual form. Whether they are clean crisp stainless steel or bronze with a leather-like patina or a vibrant yellow knot, they are abstractions and gestures; they are about fluid form. He does not make editions thus each of his works is an original.”
