Eli Cantini: Textures of Space

Eli Cantini’s striking abstract acrylics are both graphic and organic.

Cantini covers her canvases with intricate, layered textures that only sometimes resolve themselves into a recognizable depiction of space, with foreground and background and even half-visible figures. These works show imagined landscapes where empty space roils with action as much as do people and objects. Just as often, the texture in its infinite variability and unpredictability is the painting. The artworks either are monochrome or revolve around a palette carefully chosen for its emotional resonance – browns, yellows, and reds bleeding in and out with surprising softness, denoting shades of loss and wonder. There are countless brushstrokes, angular and taut. In a different artist’s hands, the grid-like motif and murky depths might result in an emotionally removed painting. But Cantini creates a world of change, intrigue, and palpable human feeling.

Eli Cantini was born in Mendoza, Argentina, just next to the Andes mountain range. She has exhibited throughout her home country as well as in Spain. She also works in watercolor and graphic design.

About the Exhibition

From photorealistic renderings to energetic abstractions, the artwork in Kaleidoscope of the Mind demonstrates the myriad truths artists investigate through their work. The artists featured in this exhibition express themselves using a range of techniques, which meld together in a mosaic of visions, personal truths, and questions of existence. In this show, physicality is evocative, abstraction is descriptive, and every technique is meaningful.
