Bilder Paintings 1985–2018

€21.90 (excl. VAT)

From one series of pictures to another, the New York painter Ross Bleckner reinvents himself in order to ultimately examine again and again the fragility of existence and man's yearning for the metaphysical vanishing point behind the world of appearances. Death is omnipresent in Bleckner's oeuvre and marries with beauty within his paintings. Images of magnificent flowers or human cells, which the artist transforms into bright lanterns, explore an unknown territory between biology, psychology and identity. When, almost imperceptibly, letters appear between the stripes of a painting from 1987, spelling out the words "Remember Them", then this epitaph is also a reference to that unfathomable disease that remains a consistent focus for Ross Bleckner: AIDS. The exhibition at the Neues Museum Nürnberg covers a period from the mid-1980s to the present day.
