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 artist considers this painting, acrylic on polyester, to be a continuation of the kind of space revealed in sbc 195 and sbc 203:
A formal matrix that is prevented from being perceived as merely figure-ground by virtue of its interaction with three separate receding spaces, none of which can be read as the background.
