The gallerist and curator Harry Simon, owner of Simon Gallery in Morristown, New Jersey, wrote about Bolt’s work in 2016, saying:
“These paintings represent the new visual foundation that Bolt has employed over the last three years which utilizes a symmetrically divided composition to posit open and closed forms, interlocking shapes and illusionary spaces. In doing so, he affirms the complex, often contradictory, nature of spatial comprehension.”
Timothy Van Laar, artist, critic, author and curator of the “About Painting” exhibition Bolt’s work was included in at the Simone DeSousa Gallery, Detroit, MI in 2016 wrote about Macyn Bolt:
“Macyn Bolt’s Shadow Boxer series investigates the qualities of reflection and mirroring that are unique to the space of abstract painting. These are paintings in which rigorous, reductive imagery shifts between flat and illusory. Anchored within the symmetry of two equal divisions, the crosscurrents of these spatial polarities ricochet off each other to create a subtle equilibrium.”
The “Rotary” paintings series focus on a shallow, mostly monochromatic surface that include bas-relief planes “locked” together against a more “fluid”, painterly background.
The dripped surface of that background is only seen through small openings, or gaps between the flat, assembled forms.
The tension of overlapping foreground shapes and the contrary background treatment is accentuated by the high-key yellow color that pushes the composition forward toward the viewer.
It creates a drama that might not readily be associated with such a shallow space that includes subtle shifts and provides a perceptual twist that has a kind of electric visual charge.
