Joe Gitterman has sculpted for 50 years. Yet it wasn’t until he retired from Wall Street that he devoted full time attention to his art. Since his first exhibition at a local Connecticut gallery in 2011, Joe Gitterman’s career has taken off. His work has been bought by both private and corporate collections and he has received commissions from Robert Couturier, Norwegian Cruise Lines, The Riverside Building in London, the Robert A.M. Stern designed Arris building in Washington D.C. and the Four Season's Hotel in Houston, among others.
Gitterman's sculpture was initially inspired by a love of ballet and modern dance. He states, “I thought about the movements of the dancers as a series of frames in an old celluloid film, and how just one of those frames could convey a fantastic sense of motion. I thought that capturing this ‘single frame of motion’ in a solid piece of sculpture would be a wonderful challenge.”
