Opus 320, “Potpourri – on Lilac”

The 8”x10” dimensions of this painting allowed Cano o experiment with a lilac background, regarded by him as “quite soothing”, and thus fit for a simple dark frame that stabilizes the energetic swirls of colored pigments across the center. These powerful passages combine vivid red/orange and black accents with six grey/brown + white clusters that form a rhythmic potpourri. In Cano’s design these call to mind that “being repetitive is like Ravel’s Bolero”. Their placement, stretching across the entire picture space, requires the lilac as a calming buffer.
