David Cantine
Thursday, June 15, 2017 - Saturday, July 08, 2017



David Cantine’s highly recognizable compositions of coloured circles below Plexiglas have been the painter’s primary pursuit for 43 years of his impressive painting career spanning almost six decades. What originally began as a still-life of apples and their shadows evolved into the present abstract imagery of four circles and seven colours. Motivated by the use of “structural colour instead of descriptive colour,” David Cantine continues to explore variations on this minimalist theme. Since the early 2000s, he has also explored a more painterly form of colourful abstracted still-life, with echoes of inspiration from Giorgio Morandi.
