Richard Kurtz’s work has a frenetic energy and bold style that recalls graffiti yet includes a variety of unlikely materials such as glitter, bits of straw, frayed newsprint, sheet music, maps, gift cards, and other related materials. Even though he is not left-handed, he draws with his left hand in an attempt to be more open and connect with the more intuitive side of his brain. He commented on the his b/w boxer series by stating, “ For me, the image of the boxer is a warrior – a hero. We all have to fight to remain conscious and present. It’s like in life, you blink, you loose.”
