Ronald Bladen (1918-1988) is considered one of the founders of Minimalism, but he was also a self-proclaimed romantic. His interest in monumental scale and simple form was less a product of conceptual reductionism, but rather, of an interest in the drama which such forms can inspire. He was interested in the “presence” of a work of art. The solidity and simplicity of his work was intended to reinforce its stature, to stabilize and ground itself as the viewer shifts position.
