Born in Toronto in 1938, Ron Bolt carries on the tradition of Canadian landscape painting through a more contemporary vision. The artist often focuses on capturing the sublime coastlines and flowing rivers of the vast nation. His early work, including “Arctic One, Toward the Polar Seas”, embodies a reductive, minimalist approach that was largely influenced by abstract painting. Dark, moody, and barely representational, the large-scale canvas showcases a powerful scene of the sublime views found in Canadian nature.
