Blossoming Almond Tree, inspired by Van Gogh’s painting of the same name, is based on the artist’s recollections of an art show, Vincent Van Gogh: My Dream Exhibition, at Amsterdam’s Beurs van Berlage. Here, a background of black paint and gold leaf creates a nocturnal, almost stormy effect. In the foreground are white, cartoon-like tree branches, with white and coloured floral blooms, a peaceable counterpoint to the raucous play of the under-painting. At top we read “Gnoissienne 4,” the title of a work by nineteenth century composer Erik Satie, which Bartlette encountered in an interpretive video at the exhibition. The word “art” is rendered twice, in capitals and lower case, which suggests a dichotomy, perhaps between “high” and “low” art (Bartlette’s works usually invoke both lineages with equal force), or perhaps between art and the way art is presented and contextualized in galleries.
