Artist Ron Gorchov Death – Dead | Passed Away – Obituary

Ron Gorchov Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Ron Gorchov.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

Ron Gorchov is an American artist known for his richly colored paintings on saddle-shaped supports.

By stretching linen over curved stretcher bars, Gorchov achieves unique, concave surfaces which recall Bronze Age shields or sarcophagus masks. “I fell in love with Matisse’s way of using very little paint. I liked the elegance of using thin paint,” he explained. “I wanted to be more like a sign painter, where it was objectively motivated. In other words, I wanted to know where the paint was going.”

After years out of the spotlight, in the early 2000s the artist’s work once again began to attract public attention. Gorchov lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Detroit Institute of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.

RIP Ron Gorchov • 1930-2020

Damn, painter, Ron Gorchov, died. He made these big Pringle-shaped paintings, funky & good. He left an early impression on me bc he showed at Susanne Hilberry, one of the only galleries that showed prominent contemporary artists in the Detroit area, first gallery I worked at. RIP

Farewell to Ron Gorchov, whose paintings were sculptures and sculptures were paintings, and who lived on that brave and nervy edge. Some of the work that resulted is genuinely spectacular. By all accounts a special teacher, too.


Truly sad to say goodbye to Ron Gorchov. Great memories from his opening in Paris in 2018, at Maruani Mercier. RIP Maestro @laurentmercier1 @sergemaruani @rongorchovstudio #rongorchov

I love #RonGorchov ’s work & am saddened to read he has died. This article also points out some of the absurdities of the art world’s fickle declarations and whims of fashion, which Gorchov thankfully resisted.


The art world lost one of the great ones yesterday. #RonGorchov was one of the nicest and least pretentious artists I have met in my days, and he was always welcoming to everyone around him.

I first fell in love with his work when I saw one in the High Times, Hard Times back when I was in grad school, and was instantly in love.

When I started working with him at a gallery, I told him about my first impression of his work, and how happy I was to work with him. He told me that the paintings weren’t just abstract saddle shapes like many saw them as, they were the side of a woman’s body from her quadricep to her axilla. He turned abstract art into figurative art, hiding there right in plain sight. There I completely understood his level of genius!

In addition to making some of the best works in his generation, he also made the best coffee I’ve ever had at his studio.

Rest in peace Ron. You may be gone, but your legacy will live forever
