Ronald Bladen – Sculpture

Ronald Bladen - The X

Ronald Bladen is considered one of the fathers of Minimalism but he envisioned himself a romantic. This attitude was a successful attempt to avoid the trap of the pigeonhole. His interest was in the dramatic effect that a sculpture could have on a viewer. This accomplishment is clear to anyone that approaches these monumental works.

An exhibition of his painted aluminum garden scale sculptures as well as some drawings and models is set to open this week at Jacobson Howard Gallery. The work above was shot at the Corcoran in 1967 during the “Scale as Content” exhibit. The last major display of Bladen’s work was at P.S.1 in 1999. Opportunities to see his work don’t come around often, so head over to the gallery and allow yourself to be wooed by a modern master.
