The exhibition features the latest series of encaustic paintings by José-María Cano, which take as their subject the mysterious surface of our planet’s solitary moon.

About

Produced using molten paraffin wax which is applied to the surface of the canvas using a wax gun, the  paintings are then carved and formed to create a textured, high-contrast, bas-relief, that becomes an expression of longing and awe at the ultimate unknowability of the universe and of life itself.

José-María Cano (b. Madrid 1959) is internationally known for a number of important
series, including The Wall Street 100 and La Tauromaquia; the former drawing on themes of capitalism, wealth and power, and the latter the art and ritual of bullfighting. Painting and music have always been intertwined in Cano’s life as equivalent means of expression.
