Contemporary Spanish artist, Ernesto Cánovas, will present Multiplied, his forthcoming exhibition at Halcyon Gallery, London. This brand new series of work uses large scale mix-media on wood panel painting as part of Cánovas’ ongoing exploration into cinema, abstraction and found imagery.
Influenced by recent popular culture, Cánovas combines decontextualised visual media to create a unique narrative sequence. By introducing abstract colour panels into the composition, Cánovas breaks down the boundaries between light, colour, form and abstraction. The contrast between natural and man-made is highlighted through the use of applied materials to the wooden canvas, which range from graphite drawings, acrylic, mixed media, enamel paint and resin.
