Joe Gitterman has sculpted for 50 years. Yet it wasn’t until

he retired from Wall Street that he devoted his full

attention to art. Since his first exhibition at a local

Connecticut gallery in 2011, Joe Gitterman’s career has

taken off. His work is now part of 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 many others.

 

Gitterman was initially inspired by a love of ballet and

modern dance. “I wanted to emulate the beauty of

dancers' movements I thought that capturing a ‘single

frame of motion’ in a solid piece of sculpture would be a

wonderful challenge.”

 

Sculpting maquettes in copper, wax or acrylic, Gitterman

chooses to cast in bronze or fabricate in stainless steel, but

never in editions, making each piece unique and original.

His work ranges from intimate hand sized pieces to

dramatic works well beyond human scale. The surface

texture and color of each piece accentuates either dynamic

movement or sensual form; clean crisp stainless steel,

bronze with a leather-like patina or vibrant yellow each is

an abstraction or gesture that conveys fluidity of form.
