Renowned Mixed Media Artist Richard Kurtz' Outsider Style

Santa Fe-based artist Richard Kurtz is a renowned mixed media artist most recognizable for his prize fighters, super heroes and seductive women painted with Kurtz' signature style. 

His work is a narrative in color, "My role is to speak truth through images. My challenge is to do so without being appropriated by an unforgiving system."

"My playful style speaks for an inner child inside all of us. The child preserves myth and wonder, heroes and villains, in a world of violent manufactured control. My artwork serves as an alternative to a rigid system, a key for the shackles that bind us."

Scrap metal, discarded paper, fallen pieces of material life - these are the materials allow the artist to reassemble through collage a true image, with a coherent meaning, and a reminder for us all.
