Meyerovich Gallery’s current exhibition, Ross Bleckner: Flowers, features glowing and contemplative artworks by one of New York’s influential contemporary artist. This show, which runs until January 31, 2017, includes a group of beautifully poetic mid-sized flowers from the 1990s. These captivating and colorful artworks on display at Meyerovich Gallery feature two mid size floral series: PS (42 x 33 inches) and Just Because (33 x 42 inches). Ross Bleckner's work blends abstraction with recognizable symbols to create meditations on perception, transcendence & loss. His poetic works often employ recurring symbolic imagery, such as birds and flowers.
Ross Bleckner was born in 1949 in New York City and raised in Hewlett, NY, a Long Island suburb. Mr. Bleckner received a Bachelor of Arts from New York University in 1971, a Master of Fine Arts from Cal Arts in 1973, and has taught at many of the nation's most prestigious universities. The Solomon R. Guggenheim of Art had a major retrospective of his works in 1995, summarizing two decades of solo shows at internationally acclaimed exhibition venues such as SFMoMA, Contemporary Arts Museum, Stockholm Moderna Museet, and the Carnegie Museum of Art. Works by Mr. Bleckner are also held in esteemed public collections throughout the globe, including MoMA, MoCA, Astrup Fearnley, Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Not only has Mr. Bleckner had a profound impact of shaping the New York art world, his philanthropic efforts have enabled many community organizations to perform their vital work. In 2009 he was the first visual artist to be named Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
