A gallerist familiar with Kurtz' work summarized the artist's material choices, "As important as the subjects to understanding Kurtz’s works is the medium – discarded and recycled bits of print publication, DIY building and packaging supplies, along with everyday objects that bring a sense of familiarity to the works."
What he does with these bits and scraps is playful and honest. Not just the way he captures man's best friend, but in the reality of human subjects that surround his Brooklyn neighborhood.
I love the 'realness' of his sculptures. If you're in the neighborhood, check out the work of Will Kurtz at the Mike Weiss Gallery at 520 W. 24th Street in New York City.
