Ross Bleckner's paintings, photographs, and prints focus on the transience of beauty, the fragility of life, and the loss of love. By clustering and repetitively painting subjects such as birds, flowers, and microscopic cells, Bleckner creates imagery that is often visually elusive and diffused by light, with forms that constantly dissolve and reassemble before the viewer's eyes. Despite their abstract nature, the visually haunting patterns are recognizable in a way that is both visceral and difficult to define. Set against a black background, this refracted composition references the impossibility of reconstructing memory.Read Less
About the Artist
About Ross Bleckner
His large-scale paintings depict flowers that are profuse and brightly colored, yet deliquesced, scraped away, and abstracted until they become blurs of paint, birds, and human cells floating in dark color fields, as though they were stars cast into the night sky. This prepossession with light and mortality—expressed through symbolic organic forms and painterly abstraction—is a theme that runs throughout Bleckner's thirty-year body of work.
