In One Breath sees Ernesto Cánovas reflect on the complex connection between past and present, along with an examination of colour and form.
Building upon the themes and techniques explored in previous solo collections including Multiplied (2016), Overlapping View (2015), An American Trilogy and Turneresque (both 2014), Cánovas' latest exhibition at Halcyon Gallery sees the artist reflect on the complex connection between past and present, along with an examination of colour and form. Cánovas sources images from old and new media to produce evocative artworks that capture a fleeting moment in time, a snapshot or flash of an event's memory - the event remaining secondary in importance to the image which represents it.
‘Ernesto Canovas, In One Breath is of exceptional importance. It represents a milestone in Cánovas’ work, a culmination of his career so far, but also the beginning of an exciting new phase.’
