Edition: Unique, Unframed.
The artist considers this painting to be a continuation of the kind of space revealed in sbc 195:Aformal matrix that is prevented from being perceived as merely figure-ground by virtue of its interaction with space that appears to be beyond or behind the background.
Susan Cantrick is an American abstract painter whose primary interest is in painting as a structured visual response to sub-linguistic thinking. Her paintings are analogs of her pre-verbal perception that aim to be as articulate as possible, crystallizing the vitality and complexity of emergent cognition. She lives and works in Paris, France Cantrick came to the visual arts by way of music, which she studied in the U.S. (B.A. Bennington College, M.A. Peabody Conservatory of Music, Baltimore, MD) and practiced, as a violinist, for over 15 years in both the U.S. and France, where she has lived since 1990.In 1997, facing chronic tendonitis, she transitioned her creative practice from violin to visual art. She has been working from an independent studio in Paris since 2002.Cantrick spent a winter residency at the Vermont Studio Center in 2004. Cantrick's essentially modernist painterly techniques, merging the gestural with the hard-edged, are mediated by post-modern digital interventions. Her hybrid practice favors a stylistic eclecticism that can belie its coherent underpinnings.The various processes she explores in her work combine elements of structure and freedom.For the last 10 years, she has been painting from digital studies that are generated from photo-fragments of her previous work. The results resemble what she characterizes as "a gamut of genealogies," paintings that share a common visual ancestry with their predecessors. She recently embarked on the challenge of returning to previously unfinished works, proceeding with new compositions imposed on the already inhabited space. Her various approaches investigate painting as state of mind, process, and object, revealing a connection to ideas about context and the renewal of identity.Alongside her painting practice, Cantrick creates small-format collages mounted on paper and panel that are often composed of alternate applications of paint and ink-jet printed imagery. Beyond a love of color and the sensuality of paint, Cantrick's process is driven and defined by her convictions about painting as a form of visual thinking rather than narration, illustration, or critique. As a painter, she thinks in terms of materializing the moment of her perceptual experience when thoughts begin to cohere but before they formulate themselves into language. Though she has occasionally used literature or photos from her environment as points of departure, specific external stimuli are rarely referenced. At the same time, she is aware of how the body and landscape have influenced her preoccupation with how to manipulate flat pictorial space -- how best to show its ambiguities and exploit its complexities. In a text for the catalog of a 2013 Paris group exhibition entitledCrossroads, Françoise Caille wrote: Cantricks work is characterized by an off-centered hybrid network of organic and geometric structures that seem to be moving beyond the limits of the picture plane. ;A geometry that resists the rigor of classic mathematical figures is organized and then undone, favoring aleatoric forms and playing with the power of color contrasts.Out of the chaos and diversity of these structures emerges, however, a form of spatial anchoring: the compositions are stable, barely yielding to the movements that cross them. The work appears to be a constructive game of working out the best equilibrium amongst the forces at play. Cantrick employs at once an architectural approach and the means of a cubist who decomposes and recreates space, in this case fictive; The space is filled with structural richness, building a totality. In September 2013 she received the Art Absolument prize at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles, Paris.Susan Cantrick had her second solo show in Paris in 2007. Since then she has shown regularly in solo and group exhibitions in both France and the U.S. Her work has been acquired by ACMIN Vie (Paris) as well as by other private collectors in France, the U.S., and Japan.
