"Bleckner's painting in many ways seems to reaffirm this transcendental viewpoint. Their vibratory incandescence created an analogy to the rhythmic substructure of a knowable nature. At the same time, Bleckner is moved by darker historical events...His work conveys a mood of questioning in the wake of this troubled history, and a realization...that the reality of disillusionment may also offer the possibility of transcendence. "
Peter Halley, "Ross Bleckner: Painting at the End of History, Arts Magazine, New York, May 1981.
