The process Cano followed here is to start with geometric shapes as a background, before coming up with an amorphous creation to ‘hover’ above.  It does allow for a three-dimensional separation and many bold contrasts. Yet his purpose ‘wasn’t thinking of any shape in particular but

more of an ‘organic movement’.  Black shaping and texturing added even greater separation, as did fluid brushstrokes used for the central motif. Its frame adds support as it balances ‘this very interesting composition’   so as to suggest a nearly universal challenge between “order vs. change”.
