Ross Bleckner, well-known for his large-scale canvases, has for years used watercolor as both a means and an end to painting. While Bleckner's works in oil deal primarily with remembrance and loss -- operating as memento mori to those lost in crisis -- the watercolors are far more iconic, symbolic of transformation and transcendence. The watercolors, instructive in understanding the larger oil on canvas pictures, also possess a photographic quality -- their brightness and shimmering surfaces attest to this artist's mastery and technique. These precious gems hold up on their own as a major part of Bleckner's oeuvre, yet they are relatively unknown. Beautifully reproduced, the sixty images selected here reveal the depth of Bleckner's talent and the degree to which this work relates to the artist's other paintings.
