Septych: Kurtiss Lofstrom
2-28 February 2017

“Septych” is recent collages by Kurtiss Lofstrom.

About Kurtiss Lofstrom:
Kurtiss Lofstrom has worked in music, super 8 & 16mm film, painting, mosaic, glass, and collage. His work explores the formal aspects of materials, composition, the collision of past, present and future, and the nature of public imagery. He is primarily a self-taught artist, although he studied creative writing, theatre, and film at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont. He grew up in Seattle, and currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.

“I like to think of my art as visual music. I am very influenced by rhythm. I like to work with found materials as a way of interacting with coincidence in the world. I hope to further explore film and large scale public art works.”

Kevin Sampsell profiled Portland, Oregon-based collage artist Kurtiss Lofstrom in Issue 12 of Kolaj Magazine: “Stumbling Around the Art World: Scavenger-Style Collage”. Read more HERE.
