WHITE ON WHITE

As stated in the overview... Sometime in 1968 or 9, after years of dividing his major 4-by-8-foot compositions into episodic sections, as in ( 1965 No.10 which is here and here) , Bloore shifted to single pattern, all-over concepts. At the same time he switched from the two-to-one proportion of standard issue masonite panels to a slimmer, 43 x 96" version of the "Golden Ratio." This meant cutting five inches off the long side of the hardboard sheets. Cutting the off-cuts down to yet another "Golden Ratio" of 5 x 7 inches provided the painter with quite a supply of little panels for experimentation. And the baby Bloores were born.

These little panels provided a field for both creative experimentation and repetitive practice, of both composition and of knife work. They are like short pieces of music: recitals of etudes, with sweet but severely bounded improvisation and virtuosic subtly varying technique.
