“In Richard Kurtz’s work aggressive vixens, wrestlers and

heroes occupy canvas, and found objects in bright colors and

bits of painted texts. These characters are repeated mantras in

Kurtz’s work, and serve as springboards for new characters.

These new characters create a dialogue with the male psyche

and serve as a reaction to our culture’s perception of power

among the sexes.” Catherine Haley Epstein
