Ronald Bloore was a founding member of the Regina Five, and his distinctive work is recognizable at a glance. What is less well known is his method of achieving these works. Bloore spent a great deal of time thinking about each one before he began to paint, exploring it in his mind until he settled upon a clearly defined idea. He would then imagine the painting as a completed thing, right down to the subtle variations of surface and texture, and would set out to execute it, without changing anything. This was in contrast to the ideas of abstract painting that led the art world during Bloore’s career, wherein gesture, free response and intuitive expression were highly valued. Bloore instead was concerned with the execution of the work as he had conceived it. To achieve this, he built up paint, often in an almost monochrome palette, and in each work, used an array of related elements: lines, geometric shapes or motifs taken from ancient architecture. This 1969 oil is an excellent example of his method, manner and mastery.
