Recent Paintings

In addition to their colour, Ron Gorchov’s (b. 1930) oil paintings’ exceptional shape captures the viewer’s attention. The artist stretches his canvas over a curved frame and then paints minimalistic installations on it. Galerie Forsblom’s exhibition is the first ever in Finland to exhibit Gorchov’s idiosyncratic paintings.

Gorchov, who is known as an uncompromising modernist, seeks to accomplish the essence of abstract form with his paintings. The artist has, however, abandoned geometry typical to modernism and shifted towards a more biomorphic form. The patterns of the paintings resemble living organisms, and thus they describe the beginning of a certain formative state. These questions of form and existence materialize into works of art through the use of bold brushstrokes.
