Kurt Von Voetsch is an artist, educator, and museum professional. His current work is a cathartic exploration of his deep faith and his eight year battle with brain cancer. His work pieces together gestural drawings and guttural utterances, forming a visual monologue that is both personal and universal. His process includes continually destroying and remaking objects, erasing any sense of time or history.

Kurt Von Voetsch holds an MFA from Ohio University and an MS in student administration from the University at Buffalo. His works and performances has been widely exhibited in Western New York and beyond, including at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Castellani Art Museum, UB Anderson Gallery, Hallwalls, Big Orbit, Chautauqua Institution, and Memorial Art Gallery. In recent years, Von Voetsch’s artwork has been “a method of purging fear” amidst his ongoing struggle with cancer.
