About the Item

‘Blah, Blah, Blah’ is an eye-catching silkscreen print with color-shifting ink by contemporary artist Mel Bochner. This piece was created in 2022 and is part of a limited Edition of 30, 5 APs, 5 PPs. Glittering silver and black shimmer and gently shift in the light, making this print a special work of contemporary pop art. Bochner’s simple yet bold word play is instantly recognizable in this piece. ‘Blah, Blah, Blah’ is grand in scale and signed by the artist himself, and is number #30 of edition. This work comes ready to install with a custom-made museum frame with UV protective glass. Mel Bochner is recognized as one of the leading figures in the development of Conceptual art in New York in the 1960s and 1970s. Emerging at a time when painting was increasingly discussed as outmoded, Bochner became part of a new generation of artists which also included Eva Hesse, Donald Judd, and Robert Smithson - artists who, like Bochner, were looking at ways of breaking with Abstract Expressionism and traditional compositional devices. Bochner came of age during the second half of the 1960s, a moment of radical change both in society at large as well as in art. Bochner received a Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1962 and honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts in 2005 from the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. While painting slowly lost its preeminent position in modern art, language moved from talking about art to becoming part of art itself. Bochner has consistently probed the conventions of both painting and of language, the way we construct and understand them, and the way they relate to one another to make us more attentive to the unspoken codes that underpin our engagement with the world. His pioneering introduction of the use of language in the visual, led Harvard University art historian Benjamin Buchloh to describe his 1966 Working Drawings as “probably the first truly conceptual exhibition.”
