Ronald Bladen Monograph to be released Fall 2018

Official Monograph Press Release from The Artist Book Foundation

Ronald Bladen

BY ROBERT S. MATTISON
FOREWORD BY MARK DI SUVERO

Ronald Bladen (1918–1988) occupies a unique position in the history
of postwar art. Best known for his monumental sculptures, Bladen was
regarded as an artistic forerunner by Minimalist artists such as Donald
Judd, Sol Lewitt, and Carl Andre. Distinct from the matter-of-fact work
of these artists, Bladen’s pieces are tributes to the monumentality of
sculpture, what the artist called “presence.” His large objects fill entire
rooms, pressing outward against the walls and ceilings; themes include
the force of gravity, the dynamism of planar surfaces, the impact of scale,
and the emotional power of confrontation with the viewer.

Bladen’s early career took place in San Francisco where he became
friends with Allen Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, and Al Held. During those
years, he created Earth Drawings made from soil and water, as well as
powerful, densely textured paintings that suggest topographical forces. At
Held’s suggestion, Bladen came to New York City in 1956, where he became
a founding member of the cooperative Brata Gallery.

In New York, Bladen produced collages of folded paper followed
by plywood reliefs that were exhibited at Green Gallery. He then devoted
his attention to grand, freestanding sculptures constructed of black
plywood panels that covered complex wooden armatures. He exhibited
Three Elements (1965) in the breakthrough exhibition Primary Structures
at The Jewish Museum in 1966, a steel version of which is in the collection
of the Museum of Modern Art, and presented his enormous sculpture X
(1966) in the courtyard of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC,
with sculptures by Barnett Newman and Tony Smith.

During the later 1960s and 1970s, Bladen received important public
commissions for towering steelworks in New York City, Seattle, Albany,
New York, Buffalo, Baltimore, Düsseldorf, Germany, and Riyadh, Saudi
Arabia. In the 1980s, he created geometrically intricate and reflective
wall reliefs that have never been exhibited, and he taught young artists at
Parsons School of Design. The physical power of his art is highly regarded
by a generation of sculptors, including Mark di Suvero, Richard Serra,
and Ursula von Rydingsvard.

This first monographic study of Bladen’s art connects him to the
artistic, intellectual, and social forces of his age. Copiously illustrated,
it presents a comprehensive record of his oeuvre and documentary
photographs of his working process, in addition to a complete chronology,
bibliography, and exhibition list.

Robert S. Mattison, Marshall R. Metzgar professor at Lafayette College,
Easton, PA, is the author of numerous books, articles, and exhibition
catalogues on modern art, including Franz Kline: Coal and Steel, Arshile
Gorky: Works/Writings, and Robert Rauschenberg: Breaking Boundaries.
Mark di Suvero builds large-scale sculptures out of industrial materials.
His work has been shown across the US and Europe, and is in many
prominent permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art,
New York, NY, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY.
