Sandra’s work is inspired by her interest in nature, science and the reciprocal connections between humanity and the living world. This focus also encompasses the environment we create at a personal level and the effect time imparts on the whole. Her interest in experience and concern with environment reflects in her desire to create site specific work; the intention being the work should belong to the space it inhabits.
Pitkin often uses the forms of nature to spark recognition and reflection in the viewer, and of how we live among the world. Whilst often working with copper and paper, Sandra continues to explore other media and methods of creation. Since graduating BVA (hons.) at Sydney College of the Arts, Pitkin has exhibited her work in many outdoor exhibitions and galleries. She has fulfilled numerous commissions, won several awards and her works are represented in private collections.
