Opus 429, “Coral and Pearls”



This ‘experimentation with translucency and pigment on top gives the textural effect of penetrating all the way to the background’ says Cano. To accomplish this meant developing a painterly tour-de-force as he did!    Layers of wave-like blue/green strokes mesh with burnt-sienna swirls, magically suggesting a watery atoll strewn with white pearls.  All flows rather than floats –until resolved into soft gold undulations of the frame.
