Richard Bloes is an Intermedia artist working with combinations of sculpture, found objects, installation, and video. He received his M.F.A. in intermedia and video art from the University of Iowa in 1977. His large-scale sculptural works involve the incorporation of video elements animating the sculptural elements of the work itself. The process of the making of the recordings are both seen in the resulting video and imagined by the viewer, who can compare the video to the corresponding elements in the still sculpture. Its stillness would become that of the past, but it has something to say, to add, to the video, as the camera’s range is necessarily always somewhat narrow. There are more objects and processes outside of the camera’s range and the viewer has to imagine, animate that space, which gives a greater breadth to the video in return. Bloes’s work has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows including: Feature Gallery, NY; Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; American Museum of the Moving Image, Astoria, NY; P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island, NY; Contemporary Art Center, Cincinnati, OH; Sculpture Center, NY; Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NY; Intermedia Arts Minnesota, MN; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; New Museum of Contemporary Art, NY; and The Kitchen, NY. He has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and National Endowment for the Arts New Genres Fellowship, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Bloes is represented by Feature Gallery, NY.
