Ross Bleckner at Sevil Dolmaci Gallery

The exhibition is in a 19th-century Greek Merchant's home in Istanbul, a 2nd-degree historical building. Ross’s beautiful paintings, which deal with loss & death, are placed carefully on the decaying plaster walls of the villa. Since we were not allowed to touch the walls, thin metal bars were suspended between wood door frames from which the paintings were hung. Large paintings are hung on metal poles to situate the contemporary works within the historical rooms carefully. A new reading table/bench was designed for the exhibition to provide a reading room for visitors in front of the original fireplace.
