Over the past 25 years, Wurtz has made hundreds of pan-bottom ready-mades - “I saw this pre-designed pattern, an interesting readymade pattern that some anonymous person designed. I thought I could just paint it…I basically just filled it in like a colouring book. The pattern already made these shapes.” Large-scale installations of Wurtz’ pan paintings have recently been included at The Aldridge Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, 2015 and in Wurtz’ first solo museum exhibition, B Wurtz: 1970-2015, at The Baltic, Gateshead, 2015-2016. The exhibition then travelled to La Casa Encendida, Madrid.
