ASG is pleased to announce Tom Bolles' up coming solo exhibition this March at the Andrea Schwartz Gallery has been featured in art ltd. magazine. Opening March 22 - April 28!
Influenced by the Op and Pop movements of the 60s, Bolles is drawn to the strong palettes of the era while maintaining minimal forms with an emphasis on color and light.
In his 2015 Catalogue Essay TOM BOLLES: Stripes, curator DeWitt Cheng remarks "Jackson Pollock, who wrote in the late 1940s, '…Modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements... the modern painter cannot express this age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture…. It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.' Bolles remembers discovering in New York, 'It’s the final product that counts.' Having successfully shed his Bay Area predilection for bohemian expressive messiness, Bolles makes works that are state-of-the-art new in technique, but endowed with the pictorial authority of abstraction’s Old Masters."
