Richard Curtner’s unique word collages are described as “visual poetry”. For the past two decades, Curtner, a California artist, has created original work for thousands of clients, blending his artistic talent with his passion for the written word. He combines hundreds of cut-outs from written texts, all pertaining to a particular theme. He scours the highest quality magazines looking for the perfect colors, words and phrases to bring an image to life. Every detail in each collage is individually cut by hand, carefully glued and then varnished. Nothing is painted or manipulated with a computer. The end result is a distinctive form of art in which you can see something different every time you look at it!
Curtner’s Museum exhibitions include Bellevue Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum, Los Gatos Art Museum and Triton Art Museum. He is also the recipient of numerous awards.
