“The question of whether Bleckner is an abstractionist or an expressionist completely misses the point: that he is avid to demonstrate the most intimate pulse of consciousness lurking behind a veil of abstract energy—‘dematerialized life,’ as he calls it. Or he can call a painting ‘a language to think thought…’” Edmund White Parkett No. 38, 1993
