From densely 'scripted' works in which trowelled heaps of highly toned paint nestle into and against each other, to calm upright works in which austere white planes are enlivened by occasionally erupting flecks of bright colour, the exhibition bares witness to the diverse range of effects Bogart's technical mastery enables. Throughout, the viewer is struck by the artist's unrivalled ability to combine power and control, creating works which rank amongst the most physically challenging objects in the history of art, yet are possessing of a harmonious beauty and tactile grace.
