Pitch is comprised of Erik Shane Swanson’s sculptures, James Scheuren’s photographs, and Philip LaDeau’s drawings. Their work reaffirms common objects and occurrences, revealing in them the extraordinary. The artists examine and capture the often overlooked, yet intimate, moments within contemporary life. Together their work evokes a sense of the unspoken, the playful, and the somber just as the monotony of the everyday is broken by surreal, pathetic, and astounding moments.
