White Balance - The Work Of Ronald Bloore

Country Available: Canada, USA

White Balance explores the inspiration, vision, and commitment of Ronald Bloore, the “simple painter” whose work helps define the history of modern art in Canada.

“He burnt everything he could fi nd and started out again, and that’s when the great, ‘White Paintings’ begin. - Terrence Heath

A passionate commitment to painting so intense that in a moment of revelation on a working trip to Greece, he destroyed all his work and defiantly began to paint using only a palette of white.

“He’s not like anyone else...Ron Bloore really is a group of one!” - Terrence Heath

A boy who ran off to “join-up” at seventeen, a professor of Art and Archeology with two honorary degrees and an Order of Canada, a gallery director who mounted one of the most scandalous art exhibitions in Canadian history, and an artist who first found fame as part of the “Regina Five”.

“It’s a three letter word, is all I can say about art!” - Ron Bloore
