Opus 312, “Galaxy”

By working in acrylic paints Cano has become quite skilled in finding combinations that develop their full impact from textural and tonal proximity with one another. In addition to tracking the swirling movement of thick brushstrokes, he has managed to suggest overlapping waves of cosmic movement within this abstract design The colors are warmer and more rhythmically fluid than in those with taut compositions (such as Cosmos, of which these are remnants). Overlapping layers of more subdued colors (blue/greens and orange/yellows) work beautifully with the deckled border.
