About the Cover Artist:

ROSS BLECKNER was born in 1949 in New York City and grew up in the town of Hewlett Harbor, on Long Island. He currently lives and works in New York City. In 1965 a viewing of The Responsive Eye, the first art exhibition he ever saw, made a huge impact on him. He decided to become an artist and went on to study with Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close during his time at New York University, from which, in 1971, he graduated with a B.A. He then went on to earn an M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts in 1973. For the past twenty years, his art has been largely an investigation of change, loss and memory, often addressing the subject of AIDS. Mr. Bleckner uses symbolic imagery rather than direct representation, and his work is visually elusive, with forms that constantly change focus.
