Ron Gorchov was born in Chicago in 1930, has lived and
worked in New York City since the early 1950s. The typical support of his
artwork, that resembles a human bust, builds the concrete space of Art making
itself. A room unchanged in the decades that accurately records the changing of
the gesture of the artist who reiterates the same concept: himself. The artist
has become a real point of reference for the new generations with his works,
suspended between two-dimensional and three-dimensional. His wooden supports,
shaped and curved, assault space with force, defining a topological space.
a first solo show at New York’s Tibor de Nagy Gallery in 1960, Gorchov has
since exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art,
P.S.1., Queens Museum of Art, New Museum of Contemporary Art, and Centro
Atlántico de Arte Moderno among other institutions.
