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.”
The surface of this work on paper, combining ink-jet print with acrylic painting, is particularly rich in pentimento traces, having gone through numerous revisions.
Like sbc 164, it started life as a fragment of a previous painting on paper that was printed upon and then subsequently reworked with paint over several months.
