Roald Nasgaard, “Abstract Painting in Canada”, Vancouver/Toronto, 2007, pages 251 and 253
“New Moon” experiments with organic motifs within the sphere of abstract painting. Using a vine-like border around the central bloom and bulb forms, Bolduc sets these elements against a smokey greywash background, punctuated with electric orange patterned orbs. His cleverly arranged central motif is executed in vibrant impasto colours which seem to come directly from the paint tube onto the canvas, creating a forceful illustration of the very process of painting. Marrying the organic and abstract, “New Moon” experiments with the limits of each painterly style in this commanding work.
