Artist Profile


B. Wurtz

b. 1948 Pasadena CA / Lives and works in NYC / Cal Arts

sculpture, collage, found objects, assemblage, painting, mixed-media

B. Wurtz’s work space is in a narrow, sun-filled early 19th century Lower East Side townhouse that he and his wife Ann also call home. The few hundred square feet of space hold storage drawers, one or two occasional tables, shelves, a couple of chairs, and a main desk where B. does much of his assemblage and painting, and surrounds himself with the raw materials of his work, brought in from nearby Canal Street, the street, or wherever.

B. (short for Bill) Wurtz studied at California Institute of the Arts, where, he pointedly observes, he took his MFA in “post-studio art,” a term coined by his principal teacher John Baldessari to suggest a practice unheeding of traditional studio concepts, and in which source materials and inspiration alike (say a T-shirt) may be found both outside and inside the place you work.
