Ron Gorchov


b. 1930, Chicago, IL, USA

Lives and works in New York, NY

In the late 1960s, he began making oil-­‐‑on-­‐‑linen paintings on distinctive saddle-­‐‑like stretchers, at once concave and convex, featuring one or two biomorphic shapes against differently coloured backgrounds. These, along with the multi-­‐‑panelled ‘stacked’ paintings that Gorchov began making in the early 1970s, are to this day the primary support structure for the artist's work. Bridging sculpture and abstract painting, Gorchov's singular artistic vocabulary challenges the methodologies of traditional painting.
