Bio

ARTIST’S BIO

Trixie has been painting for over thirty years.  While living in Hong Kong for many years, she taught beginner and intermediate oils and acrylics at the Hong Kong YWCA to women from all over the world.  Since returning to New York City from Hong Kong in 2006, Trixie has been painting at the Art Students' League of New York with the well-known Post Abstract Expressionist Larry Poons as her advisor. She is a member of the National Association of Women Artists as well as various other artists’ organizations.  She has participated in many group exhibitions in NYC, Nashville, and Hong Kong and has also had several solo exhibitions.  Having begun her career as a portrait artist, Trixie is an abstract expressionist painter through and through but still enjoys an occasional delve into the figurative.

                                                        

ARTIST’S STATEMENT  

Most everyone who isn’t an artist has a job based on a path of learning and acquiring knowledge.  Lawyers learn how to try cases.  Doctors learn the right and wrong way to doctor.  Scientists learn how to make scientific investigations. Everything really seems to be based on knowing.  Although I did spend years learning how to draw what my eye sees and to mix paint to the colors I am looking for, although I followed a path of learning techniques, to me being an artist means striving for the state of not knowing.  It means exploring, not knowing where I will end up. It is there that creativity happens and an authentic painting emerges.  My paintings, to me are my advocates, my support system.  They remind me that I am not invisible, that I am not hiding, that I am not living someone else’s idea of who I am. That may sound corny, but just being me, being able to live as the culmination of my experiences, has taken a lifetime of battles as well as many miracles and blessings.    Having overcome severe childhood trauma, I was compelled to start drawing and painting.  The process helps me to reconnect with my own self, to heal, to grow, to appreciate, to love and to feel loved and to create a visualization of what I can’t put into words.  

 

It's so funny to me because some people tell me my work is so peaceful!  At a quick glance my paintings may seem nice and easy, but the more you look, the more you see.  I see my own struggles, my courage, joys and sorrows.  It can be troubling, if that is how the viewer is feeling! But, I know it is authentic because I just do what comes to me.

 

The process is my victory, not the product.  To paint with freedom, bypassing my thinking mind, focusing solely on the actual process of applying paint to canvas, letting the paint tell me where I need to go, that is what I strive to do.  The practice of giving up on perfection and accepting the beauty of the unexpected when I paint has helped me do the same in my everyday life.

Reworking An Old Painting
Posted: 3/22/16

Sightseeing 2016 oil on raw canvas 36 x 36 inches

 

Buyers are often interested in buying an artist's latest work but they can be a lot more pricey.  I frequently I sell older paintings that I did several years ago.  The site Chairish.com has been particularly helpful in this regard.  It is a sort of do-it-yourself interior design sort of site.  Not being dedicated to fine art, I use it to sell only my old ones - at reasonable, affordable prices.  I feel it’s a good deal for everyone:  I lighten my inventory and they get quality paintings cheaper.

Looking over some of my older paintings, I came across one that is not older but was from 2015.  I liked it because  it has the atmospheric effect I was going for in a lot of my 2015 paintings, but there was something about it that I didn’t like.  Maybe it was the original inspiration, a bad dream I had had about my abusive past.  Anyway, I needed a canvas and decided to use it (what I had called “Going Back”).  I think it was very successful.  I now call it “Sightseeing”! I guess I could call it “Going Back Sightseeing”!

 

Going Back 2015 oil raw canvas 36 x 36 inches

You really need to be ruthless though and can’t be worried about letting things go.  I really enjoyed the process.    I might start dedicating one day a week to this endeavor!  What do you think?

About Painting On the Waterfront and a Couple of Others
Posted: 4/26/15

On the Waterfront 2015

On the Waterfront   oil, graphite on canvas 60 x 48 inches

This painting won a 2015 Blue Dot Award at an exhibition at the Phyllis Harriman Gallery in the Art Students League of New York!  At the reception, someone said to me, "Your paintings don't jump out at you, but invite you in."  I like that!

I know it's a good one, because I don’t remember how I did it!  That’s always a good sign - it means I was “in the zone” and not thinking about what it’s going to look like.  All I remember is that there was a bit of a battle, a bit of chaos.  It always amazes me how my paintings often end up looking so peaceful.

 

Trixie Pitts Roses with Cops & Robbers

Picasso Black and White book with my painting Cops & Robbers as a backdrop  

 

Ever since I saw the Picasso Black and White exhibition at the Guggenheim a couple of years ago, and reading the accompanying book, I have been focussing on giving my colors space.  I have been utilizing more and different greys, which have a lot of color themselves.  It may not look like it, but On the Waterfront (60 x 48 inches) actually has a lot of paint on it (Several big tubes)!  My process lately has been that of adding and taking away.  I love to get depth and not have the surface all seem like one layer.

 

 

I usually like to start with a base of white, continuing right into the wet paint, but I decided to try somethting different and for I Am Woman (below);  I started with bold vivid pinks as a base.  The challenge was to tame the pink.  A whole huge canvas of super bright paint just doesn’t do it for me anymore.  I think it worked out well, but we’ll see if I get that urge again!

 

Trixie Pitts I Am Woman 2015

I Am Woman  oil, graphite on canvas 48 x 48 inches

 

Below is something totally different - my big woman!  This canvas is 8 feet x 4 feet.  Even though it is figurative, it does have a controlled amount of color that I think adds to its power.  If it was all “colored in” it would be lousy.  I love the way she is a part of the whole, part of the abstract surroundings.  She isn’t just on top of it or beside it. When I look at I Am Woman, I see echoes of Big Girl with Weights.  They were both done withing a few weeks of each other.

On Selling My Paintings!
Posted: 6/27/14

Trixie Pitts_Scenic Rout 2014_oil on canvas_60 x 48 inches

 

I have several avenues through which I get customers who buy my paintings: word of mouth, my personal website (trixiepitts.com), my blog, art consultants who pitch my work to corporate customers, the Art Students League, as well as through other websites like SaatchiArt and ArtSlant.  Customers have also found me through Pinterest and just Googling abstract painters in NYC. 

 

Each experience is different.  Surprisingly, lots of people buy paintings without ever seeing them in person.  I recently sent one to a woman in Washington State and another to a man in Pennsylvania.  If the buyer is in NYC, I make arrangements for them to come to my apartment, because my shared studio space is not the right environment to conduct business, because it disrupts the other painters, and there is not enough space to unfurl the canvases.  Everyone who comes to my place presumably has some idea about abstract painting and some interest in my work as well as a pretty clear idea of the prices.  Even with all that as a given, it is amazing how differently people act when faced with the decisions of what and if to buy.

 

Generally, people have no concept of how much work it takes just to prepare for their visit.  Depending on the number of canvases they want to see, how many of those are still available and where they are being kept, it can be quite an effort.  First, I have to locate the canvases, stretch a couple, and prepare the others to easily display. Next I update the price list and prepare an invoice and letter of authenticity, anticipating a smooth transaction.

 

On the day the customer comes, I stay home from the studio and miss a day’s painting opportunity.  It’s all part of the process and I accept that.  Usually people, if they make the effort to come, they come to buy.  If that is the case, it is very enjoyable helping them decide which painting is best for their space.  It is so nice to have total strangers valuing my work.  Some customers though seem to have no shame.  One woman came and I showed her a dozen paintings she had requested to see.  She hummed and hawed and then asked if she could bring her husband back another day.  That was fine and back they came.  Then they both hummed and hawed, unable to decide for at least an hour.  She then asked if she could come back again with her sister.  I made arrangements.  She was the only one so far that ended up not buying anything!  Contrast this with the CFO of a major company that had viewed my website extensively, knew what he wanted and he and his wife deliberated on the spot between two canvases, then bought one and hauled it off!  Another woman flew from upstate for the night just to see my paintings.  She bought two!

 

A few days ago I had a woman come to see one painting in particular.  She said she had seen it on Pinterest and SaatchiArt.  I went through my whole prep routine and had it and one other she mentioned stretched and ready to see.  She came in and was very polite and seemed to genuinely like the painting.  I offered to unroll a couple others, but she really was only interested in this one particular one.  Then it started:  “I’m not sure if it will fit the space.”  “I don’t know if my husband will like it.”  Etc., etc.  Okay, so we made arrangements for her to come back another day with her husband.  That was today.  It was horrible!

 

She was polite and nice again and still seemed to love the painting and appreciate it.  The husband on the other hand was vile.  He was so rude that when they left, I truly felt violated.  It is hard to describe what it is like to be showing someone a painting that you put your heart and soul into and they stand there and scowl and don’t say anything nice to you at all.  I don’t care how much they hate the painting, what about basic civility.  Couldn’t he have said something like, “I can see it is well done but it is just not what I like.” or “Tell me about your process.” or “How long have you been painting?” Something.  I didn’t search these people out.  I am not some sort of obnoxious door-to-door salesperson.  They sought me out.  They came to me.  It was horrible.

 

Showing my paintings, which are a piece of me, part of me literally that I got in touch with and transferred to the canvas.  To be treated in such an offensive manner feels kind of like standing there naked in front of an abuser.  At some point I felt emboldened by his rudeness.  I offered why I think it is such a good painting and frankly quite exceptional.  I let them know it had won two art prizes.  Still nothing.  All he said when she asked him what he thought was, “Get it if you like it” and that he didn’t think it would fit in their car.  Nothing to me. 

 

They left.  Not even any attempt to say thank you for sharing, for taking the time.  Nothing.  I escorted them to the door.  She said good-bye.  He just walked out.

Wow!  I almost cried when they left, I felt so violated. 

 

There is so much bad art out there and my paintings are really nice.  I have been painting for 30 years.  I feel so angry!

Joan Mitchell Exhibition - Must See!
Posted: 5/23/14

Joan Mitchell Trees (diptych) 1990–91 oil on canvas 86 3/4 x 157 1/2 inches  Collection of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, New York Joan Mitchell Trees (diptych) 1990–91 oil on canvas 86 3/4 x 157 1/2 inches  Collection of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, New York

 

When asked by her biographer why she painted, Joan Mitchell replied, “…it’s wonderful. I’ve always said it’s like riding a bike with no hands.” 

 

After seeing JOAN MITCHELL: TREES at Cheim & Read in Chelsea, it seems to me she was riding her bike no hands through the French countryside when she created these paintings!  What I particularly love about this little show is that it shows how throughout her career, like Van Gogh, Joan Mitchell seems to have used landscapes as an inspiration or a starting point to paint her inner life.  The seven large canvases span her career in France from 1964 to 1991.

 

Joan Mitchell First Cypress 1964 oil on canvas 88 x 77 3/4 inches

Joan Mitchell First Cypress 1964 oil on canvas 88 x 77 3/4 inches 

 

The earliest painting is First Cypress, dating to early in her career, but just after moving to France.  It is a dark mass of blackish green.  I find it masterful how she seemed to be able to use what looks like viridian green (nowadays often replaced with pthalo green) to obtain such nuance of color, with only a hint of the intense staining color in it’s pure form.  Another painting, Cypress, that used a similar palette was painted about a decade later.  I found it even more amazing for its daring use of the viridian color.  Anyone who ever used this particular pigment of green color must know how easy it is for it to overpower everything on a canvas and yet Mitchell was able to such subtlety and nuance of color.  Wow!

Joan Mitchell Cypress (Diptych) 1975 oil on canvas diptych 76 3/4 x 102 inches

Joan Mitchell Cypress (Diptych) 1975 oil on canvas diptych 76 3/4 x 102 inches

 

Joan Mitchell Tilleul (Linden Tree) 1978 oil on canvas 110 1/4 x 70 7/8 inches

Joan Mitchell Tilleul (Linden Tree) 1978 oil on canvas 110 1/4 x 70 7/8 inches

 

The first painting visible as you walk into the gallery is Tilleul (Linden Tree) from 1978.  It wasn’t really my favorite somehow at the time, although I loved the color.  When I got home and I was loading my photos onto my computer, I was struck by my screensaver.  It is a photo I took on a recent trip to France.  The colors were incredibly similar to those in Tilleul (Linden Tree)!  Maybe it’s the way the forground is more saturated and the top seems paler, more misty. See for yourself:

Joan Mitchell Red Tree 1976 oil on canvas 110 3/8 x 63 inches

Joan Mitchell Red Tree 1976 oil on canvas 110 3/8 x 63 inches

 

This painting was also powerful in my estimation because of its audacious color.  The red made such a stark contrast to the green in Cypress and First Cypress, hanging in the same room.  Again, the red, like the green seemed like a very staining color and yet it is not overpowering.

 

Joan Mitchell Trees (Diptych) 1976 oil on canvas 94 1/2 x 157 1/2 inches

Joan Mitchell Trees (Diptych) 1976 oil on canvas 94 1/2 x 157 1/2 inches

 

The other painting in the room with Red Tree, Cypress and First Cypress is Trees, a large diptych dating from 1990-1991.  The colors and everything about this painting are amazing!  Even though it was done the year before she died, whilst battling all sorts of ailments,  it doesn’t feel morose.

 

The third room held two large paintings, Green Tree and another large diptych also simply called Trees.

There were also three little pastels, all named Tilleul and all dated 1977.

The only other painting was in the first room next to the large Tilleul.  It was a small oval canvas of the same name.  The colors are not dissimilar to the three pastels from the same year:

Across the street (25th Street, between 10th and 11th - in Chelsea) at the Lennon, Weinberg Gallery is another Joan Mitchell exhibition called, Joan Mitchell Black Drawings & Related Works.  It is mostly of charcoal and pastel drawings with a few small oils from her early period, 1965 if I remember correctly.

 

When they were exhibited originally in 1965, she referred to them as her “new black paintings, although there’s no black in any of them.”  The one below appears to have very similar colors to the large First Cypress in the Cheim & Reid exhibition, although this one, Untitled has less subtlety if you ask me.  

 

Joan Mitchell Untitled 1977 oil on canvas 63 3/4 x 51 1/8 inches

Unlike Cheim & Read, Lennon, Weinberg did not display any titles.  I guess you are meant to brave the icy glares of the gallery women and ask for a list.  I didn’t!  Check their website if interested for details of these little charcoal and pastel sketches (see below).

Christies Modern and Contemporary Spring Auction Preview 2014
Posted: 5/10/14

Jean-Michel Basquiat Untitled 1981 acrylic, oilstick and metallic spray enamel on canvas 68 x 103 inches

Jean-Michel Basquiat Untitled 1981 acrylic, oilstick and metallic spray enamel on canvas 68 x 103 inches

I love to go to the auction previews to see things that can’t normally be seen. Christies had some striking paintings!  Once again in my opinion, they have edged out Sotheby’s.  The quality and the presentation seemed so much higher.  Above is one of the three Basquiat paintings that I saw; there may have been more.  It was big and bright.  Below is a smaller one.

Mark Rothko Untitled 1952 oil on canvas 103 x 62.5 inches

The painting in the number one spot as you enter was a beautiful Rothko, nicely displayed on a black wall.  You can’t really tell from the photo, but the middle orange part is quite thick.

 

Cy Twombly Untitled 1952 oil, wax crayon and graphite on canvas 39 x 43 inches

Francis Bacon was represented with another super large triptych of another of his lovers.  I forget the name.  The set were impressive, but not as striking as the triptych he did of Lucien Freud with the luminous golden ochre background that was auctioned last year and sold for over $100 million.

 

There were three Joan Mitchell paintings.  A large double painting, a large single canvas and a small one.  

 

Joan Mitchell Border 1989 oil on canvas 45.5 x 35 inches

My favorite was actually the small one (above) but they were all really nice.  The small one was painted quite late in her life.

I guess her whole career was represented since the large one was early and the diptych as mid-career.  Wow! I love Joan Mitchell!

There was an interesting Alice Neel; it wasn’t a portrait!  She definitely did her own thing.  Maybe a bit Hockneyish?

And then there were the ubiquitous Warhols, including the Small Electric Chair, which I don’t care for because I think it has bad karma.

The only thing I didn’t like was a Richard Prince photograph of a naked very young girl - very sexualized if you ask me.  I’m sorry but it seemed like child pornography to me.  Having survived such a childhood myself, I took offense to Christie’s condoning the sexploitation of children under the guise of art. They even had  a sign warning people of explicit sexual content, so it’s not like they could argue it is not sexual.

Sotheby’s Impressionists, Modern and Contemporary Preview Spring 2014
Posted: 5/10/14

Tamara De Lempicka - La Dormeuse (Kizette) I 1933 oil on panel 12.25 x 16.125 inches (31 x 41 cm)

Well, it’s that time of year again!  I love going to the auction previews.  Although the work may not be the artists’ total finest, it’s great to to see works that are not usually available to the public.  I enjoy seeing things that may not be ever seen again.

I am not really a Tamara De Lempicka fan.  The straight severe edges and exactitude are not my cup of tea.  But, this little gem (it is only 12 x 16 inches) is exquisite.  It really did shine like a jewel!  I give it my "best in show”!

Another piece I really enjoyed was something I wouldn’t have expected to particularly appreciate.  It’s a sculpture in marble by Jacques Lipchitz.  I gave it a second look, and am glad I did, mainly because the name rang a bell.  I remember seeing and really loving a 1916 oil on canvas double portrait by Modigliani of Jacques Lipchitz and his wife Berthe.

I don’t know about you, but I see a face!  Eye, nose, mouth - how can you miss it!

You know, I think everyone knows what a genius Picasso was, and what a genius Matisse was.  I don’t think everyone realizes how much they influenced each other.  Basically, I don’t think anyone would dispute that Picasso used Matisse big time.  I know how it is, (on a lesser scale!) - I share studio space - and sometimes am appalled how  a certain fellow artist “repurposes” my ideas!  I try to be like Matisse - and just go with it and be flattered!  I don’t have room in my painting for negativity!

 

Henri Matisse - La Seancé de matin March 5, 1953 marble height 60 inches

Henri Matisse - La Seancé de matin March 5, 1953 marble height 60 inches

 

Then there is always the ubiquitous Picasso:Pablo Picasso - Femme Assise dans un Fautuil March 5, 1953 marble height 60 inches

Pablo Picasso - Femme Assise dans un Fautuil March 5, 1953 marble height 60 inches

 

I love this painting - I must confess, not for what it is, but for its date!  I have this critical person who, bless her heart seems to me to be talented if she could ever overcome her insecurity and negativity.  She is frequently seems to be trying to make me feel bad by making comments about how productive I am and how quickly I paint - usually in the guise of some sort of faint praise.

Okay SUE - if Picasso can paint a painting and date it March 5, 1953 - one day - then I can do it too!  I’m sorry, but I am not like you and I am not going to sit there endlessly, scratching my chin looking at my painting trying to figure out how to make it better.  Basically, I just believe you cannot “think” a painting better.  I believe 100% and even more that good painting just happen if you let them, they don’t tget thought into existence.

The other artist that had an impact on me at this preview was one that I don’t usually get worked up about - Marc Chagall!  There were three Chagalls - there may have been more, but there were three that I noticed.  They were blue - very blue.  I loved that - forget his folk business - the intense blue was like a magnet  I don’t have such a great photo - because of glare - but so be it:

Coq Rouge dans la Nuit 1944 oil on canvas 27 x 31.25 inches

Here is the third Chagall, a self-portrait:

One painting I was greatful to see was a landscape by Kirchner.  It was bittersweet.  I had just read that Kirchner committed suicide because he was so depressed about being labelled as a “degenerate artist” by the Nazis. To me, when I think of Kirchner, I think of very dark and angular figures.  the painting on show however was a landscape, but instantly recognizable somehow as a Kirchner:

 

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner  Im Sertigal (In Sertig Valley) 1925 oil on canvas 47.25 x 39.375 inches

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner  Im Sertigal (In Sertig Valley) 1925 oil on canvas 47.25 x 39.375 inches

 

I have since been to the “Degenerate Artists” exhibit at the Nueue Gallery where they have other Kirchner paintings.  It made me sad to know that he had beome depressed and committed suicide. 

There were lots of other paintings at the Sotheby’s Preview, but I can only think of one other that had a big impact on me - besides the huge Gerhard Richer - that I didn’t  take a photo of - and that is -  a little landscape by Wassily Kandinsky, which I have never had any sense of affiliation other than that we have the same birthday!  The little landscape is called: Skizze für Abend.

 

Wassily Kandinsky Skize für Abend 1901 oil on canvas 9.5 x 13 inches

Wassily Kandinsky Skize für Abend 1901 oil on canvas 9.5 x 13 inches

 

To be quite frank, I might not look at this little gem above twice if I hadn’t noticed it was by Kandinsky!  I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t looked.  But, the one below was hard to miss because of its size and brightness.

Raoul Dufy L’Artiste et son Modéle 1929 oil on canvas 51.25 x 63.75 inches 

There were also many modern works on display but I wasnt able to get photos.  There was a huge Gerhard Richter squeegee style that was impressive and a Jeff Koons large sculpture of Popeye that I didn’t hate as much as I do most of his stuff.  It was displayed well, in a room against a wall with three of the set of six mini Warhol Self-Portraits.  The Warhols and the Popeye had similar colors and style. There was another Warhol, Electric Chair that I didn’t like, and a not so great Pollock and two large late De Koonings that were nothing to write home about.  The Rothko they had was practically all black - and was painted not long before he killed himself, which was interesting.  Not a lot else to mention.

 

Tomorrow … the Christies Spring Auction Preview!
