13 September-14 October 2012. This exhibition displays the marine canvases by the Canadian artist Ron Bolt. Untouched and wild Canadian landscapes are the protagonists of Bolt’s paintings.
His sea waves, which are part of the Canadian cultural heritage, seem to emerge from his canvases with sprays and foam. His works focus on the topic of water, which is reproduced with great ability and realistic cut. Bolt particularly likes to immortalize coastal and river waterways as well as Canada’s sacred wilderness.
At the beginning of his 40-year career Bolt has been deeply influenced by abstraction and minimalism, but he later moved to oil paintings, complex compositions and expressive brush work. He has held over 70 solo exhibitions in public and commercial galleries in Canada and has participated in numerous group exhibitions in the United States, Mexico, England, Japan and China. His paintings, prints and limited edition books are displayed in the collections of museums, public galleries and major libraries in Canada and abroad.
