BIBLIOGRAPHIE
Ted Fraser, R.L. Bloore: Sixteen Years, 1958 - 1974, Art Gallery of Windsor, 1975, unpaginated


In 1975, Ted Fraser wrote about Ronald Bloore: “Upon his return to Regina in 1963, all-white pictures in raised relief became his exclusive concern.” After reviewing the wealth of paintings and ink drawings produced by Bloore throughout the following years, one can clearly see that once he had set his aesthetic course, he never deviated from it. Most remarkable is that, despite Bloore being wed to what seems a restricted palette, each of his series offers us a fresh take on his chosen theme. As with this painting, begun on March 3, 1988, and finished on March 30 (noted in the artist's records), he often laboured over a work for an extended period of time before deeming it completed to his satisfaction. Here the apparent simplicity of the surface masks the artist's complicated process. He recorded every white—glossy, matte, near white, bright white, and so on—and how each pigment changed with age. The relief elements, in this case variations on Bloore's star and X motifs, were repeatedly built up and sanded down, resulting in a subtle and elegant work that demands our full attention.
