The artist Ross Bleckner

  • US-American painter and graphic artist who creates image flickers using blurred lines.
  • Studied with Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close in New York.
  • He started experimenting with Op Art in the 1980s.

Ross Bleckner, born 12 May 1949 in New York City, is a contemporary American painter and graphic artist. Bleckner's art thrives on providing silhouettes that initially appear clear with a washed-out effect through blurring. Not infrequently, he creates light glow effects that format themselves into effective starry skies, even though flying seagulls or abstract objects are hidden behind the supposed celestial bodies. Bleckner regularly creates such »border crossers« with this flickering of images, his trademark.

Some of his works are dominated by the heavy dark background, while others are more characterised by the interplay of bright, milky-opaque ground tones and red blurring floral motifs. Bleckner, who grew up on Long Island, New York, was initially inspired to study art in 1965 after seeing the exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art.

He attended New York University and the California Institute of the Arts between 1971 and 1973, graduating with a Master of Fine Arts. His fellow students included Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close, and he also maintained contact with Peter Salle during his studies. In 1974 Bleckner lived in an elevator building in Tribeca, New York, popular among artists, which housed the Mudd Club, a popular musicians' and artists' establishment, until 1983.

His first solo exhibition took place shortly after his graduation in 1975 at the Mary Boone Gallery. In the 1980s, he experimented with Op Art with his strip paintings, the typical illusionary effects of which still run through his works today. Today Bleckner still lives and works in his hometown New York.

Der Künstler Ross Bleckner

  • Maler und Grafiker, der mit seiner verschwommenen Linienführung Bildflimmern erzeugt.
  • Studierte zusammen mit Sol LeWitt und Chuck Close in New York.
  • Experimentierte in den 1980er-Jahren mit Op-Art.

Ross Bleckner, geb. 12.05.1949 in New York City, ist ein zeitgenössischer US-amerikanischer Maler und Grafiker. Bleckners Kunst lebt davon, zunächst klar erscheinende Silhouetten durch Unschärfe mit einen verwaschenen Effekt zu versehen. Nicht selten kreiert er hierdurch Lichtglanzeffekte, die sich zu wirkungsvollen Sternenhimmeln formatieren, wenngleich sich etwa fliegende Möwen oder abstrakte Objekte hinter den vermeintlichen Himmelskörpern verbergen.

Bleckner schafft mit diesem Bildflimmern, seinem Kennzeichen, regelmäßig solche »Grenzgänger«. Einige seiner Werke werden vom schweren dunklen Hintergrund dominiert, während andere sich eher durch das Wechselspiel aus hellem, milchig-trüb erscheinendem Grundton und rot verschwimmenden floralen Motiven auszeichnen. Bleckner, aufgewachsen auf Long Island, New York, ließ sich 1965 durch den Besuch der Ausstellung The Responsive Eye im Museum of Modern Art zu einem Kunststudium inspirieren.

Er besuchte zwischen 1971 und 1973 die New York University sowie das California Institute of the Arts und schloss mit einem Master of Fine Arts ab. Zu seinen Kommilitonen zählten unter anderem Sol LeWitt und Chuck Close, außerdem pflegte er während seiner Studienzeit Kontakt zu Peter Salle. 1974 lebte Bleckner in einem unter Künstlern beliebten Liftgebäude in Tribeca, New York, in dem sich bis 1983 der Mudd Club, ein populäres Musiker- und Künstleretablissement, befand.

Seine erste Soloausstellung fand bereits kurze Zeit nach seinem Abschluss 1975 in der Mary Boone Gallery statt. In den 1980er-Jahren experimentierte er mit seinen Streifenbildern mit der Op-Art, deren typische Täuschungseffekte sich bis heute durch seine Werke ziehen. Heute lebt und arbeitet Bleckner immer noch in seiner Heimatstadt New York.
