Bogart created expressive, three-dimensional paintings through a process of ‘building.’ He focused on paint as a physical matter and recognized the medium’s material possibilities. Working as an abstract artist, he explored how the “‘script’ of a painting or the ‘non-repetitive element of rhythmical brush strokes’ could imbue abstraction with meaning.” His thickly painted, coagulated surfaces reveal how paint can be pushed, drawn or pulled across the canvas, shedding light on on the physical aspect of painting.
