Ross Bleckner gained renown as a painter during the 1980s AIDS crisis in America. His series of paintings portraying white blood cells, a kind of memento mori, would prove indicative of much of his work to follow. Bleckner wields symbolic imagery (often anatomical) rather than direct representation to evoke themes of loss, change, memory, and morality. His oeuvre is full of suggestive forms that constantly shift and change their focus.
Bleckner received his BFA from New York University and his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. A number of institutions include his work in their permanent collections, such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. He is represented by the Mary Boone Gallery in New York City.
