The artist, Rich Curtis writes, “My recent body of work is focused on exploring the medium of drawing. I am interested in mark-making as the most fundamental act of visual expression. Using a variety of techniques and materials, from staining and sewing paper to mixing wet and dry media, I combine representational and abstract imagery. As I began this work I was initially inspired by vintage postcards. I was drawn to both their diminutive size and compositional intricacy.

As the work has progressed, my drawings have increased in size and complexity. However, I try to maintain a narrative quality to the images.”
