Kurtz work of the seventies were cool, intellectual geometric
abstractions. By the 1990s with her Alluvial Paintings, she was
creating an abstracted, minimalist planet Earth. Formulating her own
geology in a time of rapid deforestation she devised her own natural
phenomenon: a union of the artists eye and the minerals that compose
the earths crust: ergo a pure composition that balanced the Earth
with the artists touch. Through unique patterns defined by sand,
pebbles, mica and other materials, the Alluvial Paintings series distilled
natural phenomena and redefined abstraction.
