In a text for the catalog of a 2013 Paris group exhibition entitled “Crossroads,” Françoise Caille wrote:
“Cantrick’s work is characterized by an off-centered hybrid network of organic and geometric structures that seem to be moving beyond the limits of the picture plane. …A geometry that resists the rigor of classic mathematical figures is organized and then undone, favoring aleatoric forms and playing with the power of color contrasts. Out of the chaos and diversity of these structures emerges, however, a form of spatial anchoring: the compositions are stable, barely yielding to the movements that cross them. The work appears to be a constructive game of working out the best equilibrium amongst the forces at play. Cantrick employs at once an architectural approach and the means of a cubist who decomposes and recreates space, in this case fictive… The space is filled with structural richness, building a totality.”
Like sbc 194, this acrylic painting on medium-weave linen deviates from Cantrick’s habitual formats.
Indeed, the seascape format presented a particular challenge for so-called abstract rendering, making the artist more aware than ever how landscape – like the body – creeps regularly and unsolicited into her paintings.
