Born in Toronto in 1938, Ron Bolt carries on the tradition of Canadian landscape painting through a more contemporary vision. The artist focuses more specifically on capturing the sublime coastlines and flowing rivers of the vast nation. His early work embodied a reductive, minimalist approach that was largely influenced by abstract painting; soon it evolved into detailed and dramatic compositions in a vivid colour palette. Residencies in Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, the Mohave Desert, as well as a fourteen day expedition down the Snake River in the Yukon, all played a role in this new preoccupation with showcasing the Canadian wilderness.
