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 polyester exemplifies that only-child status, combining random source material from Cantrick’s previous paintings.
The extremely smooth surface of the polyester support permits particularly precise rendering and unique textural effects.
