Sculptures of Ronald Bladen

Allow yourself to be wooed by a modern master. Ronald Bladen is considered one of the fathers of Minimalism but he envisioned himself a romantic. This attitude was a successful attempt to avoid the trap of the pigeonhole. His interest was in the dramatic effect that a sculpture could have on a viewer. This accomplishment is clear to anyone that approaches these monumental works. 


 
















“ I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a quasi- protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good'. Rather, we must simply multiply the paths and the possibilities of comings and goings."

Philosopher Michel Foucault
