It takes guts to flatten complicated life into a red circle on a turquoise background, and it requires wittiness to reinvent a face using four letters as B. Wurtz has done. In his Untitled (life painting), the curvy letters of the word “life” compose the eyes, nose, and mouth of a face. When “life” transforms into facial components, the word becomes equally sensorial and philosophical: life is what you see, smell, and eat. The whimsical look of the face reveals the playfulness of life, the often profound and serious subject matter that, according to Wurtz’s rendering, is also funny and frivolous. Wurtz’s life painting would make a perfect life emoji amid such a turbulent time under lockdowns and quarantines—life goes on, and have fun.
