About this Artwork
Thus far, apart from two projects that produced paintings in series, the artist’s paintings are not serial, functioning in relation to each other less like siblings and more like only children with lots of cousins.
This acrylic painting on fine linen exemplifies that only-child status, combining random source material cropped from photos of Cantrick’s previous paintings.
About the Artist
