ROSS BLECKNER. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1995. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 220 pp. with 198 ills. (158 col.). 34 x 31 cm. ISBN 0810968800 In English.
Showcasing works by a New York artist who has emerged over the past decade as a prominent figure in American painting, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 72 large-scale paintings and 49 watercolors produced by Bleckner (b. 1949) from 1980 to 1994, including pulsating stripe compositions, nocturnal landscapes and luminous abstractions based on constellation and dome motifs that frequently incorporate images of birds, ornate chandeliers or funeral urns. A critical analysis of Bleckner's themes and iconography that emphasizes the central importance of light in his oeuvre is supplemented by an essay examining his painterly techniques in an art historical context and a discussion of the AIDS-related issues addressed in his works. Well-preserved volume in mylar-covered dust jacket.
