About

PHILLIP SULTZ (b. 1930, Buffalo, NY) Philip Sultz is a mixed media artist who has made paintings, collages, and assemblages using a variety of materials. There is a subtle offhand beauty to his organic arrangements of cut paper and matte pigment. Sultz's work is neither narrative nor realist, instead, it is based on structures found in nature. He elevates the humblest materials in a manner reminiscent of Kurt Schwitters, combining bits of common brown wrapping paper, unrecognizable snippets of colorful magazine photos, and spliced passages of calligraphy to create juxtapositions at once funky and elegant. The textural quality of his work stands out the most, bringing attention to the rawness of the material whether it’s paint, paper, yarn, or twine. Sultz was born in Buffalo, NY in 1930. He attended the Albright Art School in Buffalo from 1949 to 1952 and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Missouri from 1954 to 1956 where he studied with Charles Burchfield and Zoltan Sepeshy. He taught drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design in the 1960's and began teaching painting at Webster University in St. Louis in 1993 where he is Professor Emiritus. He received the National Endowment for the Arts in Painting in 1975. His work is in many public collections such as the New York Public Library, the Paris Bibliothèque, the Hudson Park Library, New York, and the Museum of Applied Arts, Helsinki, among others. Sultz lives and works in Marion, Maine.
