Private Collection, Toronto.


Roald Nasgaard, “Abstract Painting in Canada”, Toronto, 2007, pages 148 and 151.


Formally trained in art, art history and archaeology at universities in Toronto, New York and London, Bloore's experience made him a natural leader in the Regina art scene of the 1960s. His interest in historical societies and material culture is visibility translated in his art. Naomi Jackson Groves described Bloore's work as “calmy preplanned puritanical patterns that have the evocative power of ancient symbols, the subtle refinement of pure natural shapes.” By envisioning his art before commencing its production, Bloore was able to execute textured patterns with full control, resulting in bold simplicity.
