By painting richly colored and expressive canvases, Bloom sought to understand those allusive, cosmic forces that shape our existence, going beyond the realm of real. Join Martina Tanga, curatorial research and interpretation associate, Art Bridges—Terra Initiative, for a tour examining the paradoxes in Bloom’s art—the material and spiritual, the singular and the universal, and the unsightly and the beautiful—to understand the artist’s spiritual outlook. Born in a Jewish family, Bloom’s interests were extensive, including Eastern philosophies and the occult. Explore how such broad interests crystalized in complex, captivating paintings.
