'Haiiro' by SIT

November 15, 2012


After years of working as a digital creative for commercial companies, Amsterdam-based SIT decided to leave commercial work behind and get back to his artistic roots. In his monochrome series 'Haiiro,' he investigates the narrative possibility of the slow burn. SIT is interested in the notion that the impetus for decision making arises not in moments of impending crisis, what he calls the 'fast moving winds of change,' but the possibility for stillness to act as catalyst. Ruminations on the passing of time, mortality, and the consequences of inaction figure largely in this haunting set of drawings and paintings.
