Opus 424, “The Shape”


As this painting evolved ‘it reminded [Cano] of a bell’ in the shape of our Liberty Bell.  Using darkly-opaque acrylic skins, surrounded by textured blue surfaces, he made a contrasting background, noting: ‘I worked on it as much as possible to let the bell do the talking’.  Aware how it might be as a helmet-mask, he painted his generic and “minimal” title below.
