Barbara Bolt’s focus in her art practice is the medium of painting, specifically its transformative potential. Bolt’s practice involves floating layers of diluted paint over stretched and primed canvas, allowing the image or images to emerge as if by chance through the literal movement of the stretched canvas; yet ostensibly controlled by an exacting moment of judgment.
