Ross Bleckner, (New York City artist), Untitled

This is a stunning work by Ross Bleckner. Read more about him here. Bleckner, a Conceptual artist, is known for paintings of cellular structures in reference to AIDS, as he was an artist in NYC in the 1980s when so many artists were becoming sick with it and dying. (Think RENT). His work is quite beautiful and intriguing– possibly because it comes from the heart and not only the head (Conceptual). His works of art are like a series of Requiems for his dead friends and other AIDS victims. His paintings dwell on the evanescence of life, the delicate fragility of being.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
