I paint not because i think i'm great at it; i paint because i think painting is great and i want to be a part of it!

It`s all about the human being in time, the depths of his psyche, his mortality and to scratch at his thin surface of civilization.

Some of my works are integrated into series, others stand alone as short storys.


Between 86 and 92 I run the Underground Gallery "Abriss" (Demolition)

at St.Pauli,Hamburg, a quarter of Bars , prostiutes, anarchy and squatters .

In the middle of the 70s I started to study, first Design and then Art. Then a year of study in Amsterdam follows...

"With a subtle minimalistic approach, Pittjes Hitschfeld creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. The work is aloof and systematic and mostly a cool and neutral imagery is used. The rejection of classical painting with its backgrounds, perspectives and landscapes gives the objects depicted an appearance of size and monumentality up to the sacred, the mostly empty backgrounds contrast sharply with the detail and smoothness of the depicted.
It is a rejection of the primacy of reason and the principles of modernity, with its belief in progress, emphasised since the Enlightenment.
This makes him a clear representative of postmodernism."
