Opus 311, “Cosmos”

Owing to his respect for geometry, Cano has presented here a distorted image of loosely-controlled paint that still adheres to a perpendicular axis plus rectilinear borders. In this way he illustrates how “geometry puts things in perspective in life and sets boundaries or shapes in nature”. This explains the chaotic and dissonant colors, which are restrained by the vice-like blocks of red in two opposite corners. “In this painting”, he concludes, “the geometry it is controlling [shows] in a way the deregulated or chaotic nature of the cosmos”. Even the taut elements in the frame, so tightly interlocked, help control a cosmos where chaos and order are contending.
