William Betts bold new color abstract paintings create a harmonious balance marrying freeform veils of color with the structures imposed by the technology and process. Until this series, Betts’ work has been photographically based mediated through the filters of technology and process. For these works, Betts takes a different approach, creating abstract color compositions that he then manipulates through a set of filters and tools to rationalize the composition and apply a cohesive structure to the work. By using a highly reduced color palette and ordered dithering to simulate the color nuances in the original image, Betts establishes forced constraints that embrace and highlight the technology used to realize his vision while significantly complicating the creative process. The ordered dithering used to represent the color transitions provides an interesting aesthetic mediation that is both reminiscent of a specific time in image processing and imparts a regularity that contrasts the freeform nature of the image itself. Ironically, without an image to hide mistakes and imperfections, the process requires constant monitoring and adjustment by the artist bordering on obsessive. The resulting work achieves a new aesthetic highlighting both the organic and spontaneous origins and its mechanized and controlled realization.
Betts is using complex industrial processes to create paintings that reflect the possibilities for an analog medium in a digital age. These paintings are executed in an elaborate and time consuming proprietary technique that Betts developed for applying small drops of paint with a high degree of accuracy utilizing linear motion technology and my on proprietary software he developed specifically for this purpose. Each painting has between Thirty-Six and Fifty-Eight Thousand individually applied drops of paint with each drop representing a single pixel from the source image.

From 2014 to 2016 Bos photographed significant Canadian WW1 battlefields in Belgium and France, using pinhole and vintage cameras.
Working with traditional darkroom techniques, Bos then layered these photographs with found objects related to the events, such as poppies, bullets, or stones. The result is a series of complex visual images.
