Ernesto Cánovas, Multiplied, Press Coverage

18 Feb 2016

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.
