Since the late 1950s, Ron Gorchov (born 1930) has been a stalwart advocate of the possibilities of paintings as objects rather than as representations. Early in his career, alongside artists like Frank Stella, Robert Mangold and Richard Tuttle, Gorchov experimented with the shape of the canvas and stretcher, eventually devising the saddle-like frame that has allowed him to make paintings that are sculptures as much as they are sites of image-making. Gorchovís art is distinguished by the luminous gentleness of its abstractions, which often consist of paired lozenges or lines that grow perceptually perplexing on their undulating grounds as the viewer engages them. Published on the occasion of a major exhibition in Spain curated by Gorchovís studio neighbor Ray Smith, this volume is the first substantial monograph on this much loved New York artist, who has received increasing attention over the past decade.
