About this Artwork
A constant of Cantrick’s process is the transparent layering that enhances the sense of a shallow space that is meant to be simultaneously receding and advancing.
This acrylic painting on linen exemplifies that technique, which is in the service of the artist’s interest in showing the question of space.
