Ross Bleckner

Birth placeNew York Birth date1949

Bleckner’s work deals with notions of loss, change, memory and mortality, particularly in relation to AIDS and the AIDS epidemic of the 80s. In his hypnotic large-scale abstractions, Bleckner creates a mysterious luminosity that heightens their symbolic significance and alludes to the larger ideals that motivate him. He has had solo exhibitions in the SFMOMA or the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and his work is part of collections such as the MoMA; the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the SFMOMA; or the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He also participated in the Whitney Museum Biennial (1975, 1987 and 1989), Biennale of Sydney (1988) and Carnegie International (1988)
