“Op Target Revisited” by Tom Bolles
Bolles characterizes his art as being about the materials, the finishes, and the colors. In order to consider his work successful, it must “attain an indefinable and elusive balance of color, light and texture.” “Formal” is the word most commonly applied to it. His artwork is “sketched out” first with a computer program. Due to the digitization of the image, zeros and ones from the binary code, are left behind and become part of the work. In Bolles work, he sometimes favors a painterly approach to, no doubt subconsciously borrowing from artists like Pierre Soulages and Hans Hoffman. Other times Bolles favors hard edges and brilliant colors, reflecting the influences of painters like Julian Stanczak or poster artists like Victor Moscoso. Bolles work also references back to minimal pieces, reflecting the influence of artists like Ad Reinhardt and Agnes Martin. All of these styles intersect in many of his pieces, maintaining a soft layering of color which fades to the end of the image, and almost machine like line making and precision.
