CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS


Ross Bleckner

b. 1949

Ross Bleckner’s immersive, large-scale paintings elicit a powerful hypnotic, dizzying effect.

Whether pure abstraction of stripes or dots or more representational renderings of birds, flowers, and urns, Bleckner’s work recalls Op Art and the obsessive and mysterious luminosity of Yayoi Kusama’s Polka-dot paintings. Smoothly layered on the canvas surface against a darker gray background, his multicolored volumetric circles or “cells” look like droplets of blood or molecules viewed under a microscope.
