Ron Gorchov
American, b. 1930

Bridging sculpture and abstract painting, Ron Gorchov has developed a singular artistic vocabulary over his decades of practice. Gorchov’s oil-on-linen paintings pair one or two biomorphic colored shapes against differently colored backgrounds. The artist hangs the work on a shaped canvas stretcher that is at once concave and convex, a shape critics have compared to shields or saddles. Gorchov belongs to a generation of painters who removed their canvases from the rectangular stretcher, seeking a new pictorial field, yet he is unique in his ability to unite form and content while preserving their tensions. Critic Robert C. Morgan wrote of Gorchov that he does not paint to make a point: “Rather he simply states that the convex saddle is closer to how we perceive than the hardened rectangle. This is the given in his work, and he moves ahead from there, often with extraordinarily lyrical results.”
