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 VT.  He grew up in Seattle, WA, and currently lives and works in Portland, OR.

"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." -Kurtiss Lofstrom
