“The lithograph “Still Life of Space Time” reveals a reflection on the human situation: where he lives, the relationship between architecture and human, and the buildings in which the function defines the form. This forms the basis of my pictorial and abstract formal approach of space. For this edition, the lines that intersect in a perpendicular manner create a perspective that recalls the architecture found in Hong Kong: the blue reminiscent of the ubiquitous mixed with the water. We find this aesthetically detailed appearance and infinity in “Still Life Space of Time”, as in my art installations. This lithograph is my pictorial transcription of a memory, a lived impression.” Thomas Canto
An appointment in the crossfire where the dimensions are crossing and mistaking the vision. Suddenly, the floor seems to shy away beneath our feet as soon as we see Thomas Canto’s work. His definite and mastered geometry takes us away in an idyllic and psychedelic flood. Nylon cords and pure colours become entangled in a fierce precision in order to only leave an illusion to the spectator who is dominated by the work.
Nothing is taken for granted in a world in which up and down are mixing in a perspective unknown up to here. Elevation and unlimitedness run alongside with smallness and meticulousness on a two-colours canvas. Thomas Canto alike a line magician plays with sleight of hand in order to only leave us with a strange feeling of dream and hallucination.
