  • Artist’s Statement

    The vast & changing Australian Bush landscape is a place where I feels connected to something greater than myself.  My relationship with the bush is something I am constantly exploring in my practice. When I paint , I'm not so concerned about depicting a tree or rock or any other feature, as one may see it, more as a gesture or expression of its role in the overall landscape.

  • Biography

    Kate Pittas is a contemporary landscape artist based in Meanjin/ Brisbane. Having studied fine arts at university, then teaching as a Visual Arts teacher for 10 years, Kate has been painting full time for 6 years. Kate often explores local bushland in outer Brisbane and the Scenic Rim in her work, focusing on the mood & movement of the landscape. Thick application of paint, gestural marks & bold colour are evident in Kate's practice.

  • Influences

    The Australian Bush landscape provides endless opportunities for exploration and I often references great past & present Australian landscape artists such as Fred Williams, McCubbin & John Olsen. The colours especially that many contemporary first nations artists apply are something I find so exciting & I continue to learn a lot from them.
