Press release

Baldwin Gallery is proud to present its seventh show with painter Ross Bleckner. Famously, Bleckner’s work mines the fleeting connections that unite the spiritual with the biochemical. Bleckner has long employed flowers to sing of the ephemerality of life and beauty: brief flames against the void. Profoundly, deliberately, beautiful, Bleckner’s paintings turn our desiring’s back upon themselves, evanescent cells and souls and synaptical firings. We are drawn like moths to the firmament fireworks of our ultimate infinity.

Ross Bleckner is originally from Long Island, NY, and received his bachelor’s degree from New York University and his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. Bleckner was and still is the youngest artist to have been given a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and has since received recognition and distinction throughout the art world, showing at prominent museums and galleries worldwide.

An opening reception will be held Friday, 26 December, 6-8 pm. Images are available upon request. Please call 970.920.9797 for further information.
