In her collages Gartz combines her drawings and photographs with photos of film stars and other heroes. In her latest collages the image of Bruce Lee is combined with vulnerable notes and imperfect drawings. ‘I am looking for funny, fluent and furious combinations. To me Bruce Lee is the perfect Kung Fu fighter, the master of body and mind, a philosopher and a poet and an example of how different Eastern and Western values can be in balance with each other, a subject of major importance to my work.’’
