Ronald Bloore’s Toronto years began in 1966, when he was hired to teach painting at the then fledgling Faculty of Fine Arts at York University. His professorship included a working studio at Stong House located at the northeast edge of the large campus and it remained the creative centre of his work until his retirement. Bloore had a singular, disciplined method of applying layers of pigment to board, then scraping and sanding the surface – sometimes treating the painting as drawing and then as sculpture, sometimes as fluid and then as solid – before arriving at his finished image. In this untitled painting, last seen publicly in Bloore’s major touring exhibition when he was 50 years old, Theodore Heinrich’s words continue to ring true: “Ronald Bloore is the most fastidious of all Canadian painters, quite possibly the most erudite and certainly one of the most sincere in trusting that the unverbalized messages of his paintings will somehow be received and understood by the widest range of the citizenry.”
