Opus 298, “Abstraction of a Sudden Urge”

Far from being a non-objective “sketch”, this work is both expressive and powerfully suggestive of an artist’s deeply felt state of mind. The colors are deep as well as dark shades of red, purple and blue—all set into this painting’s unmitigated white background. Combined with penetrations and edgy outlines, the slightly tilted design demands our attention for its shape-shifting forms and obvious tensions. Cano has held nothing back here, so that a sense of raw beauty emerges as he has dealt with anxiety by sharing a difficult moment in a fully cathartic and aesthetic manner.
