About the Work

Four precise circular shapes in red, gold, black and light brown form a contemplative whole at the foot of a square dove grey ground. The areas between the shapes in this minimalist acrylic painting on plexiglass are filled with maroon and light yellow. This work is unframed. Cantine's work is a poetic and intellectual exploration of a pictorial problem, color as structure which has infinite variations. Cantine may be referred to as a post-minimalist, a term coined by Robert Pincus-Witten in 1971 to describe work with a minimalist tendency but that uses modest materials and aims towards a pure formalist aesthetic. David Cantine is a senior Canadian painter who has been exploring the still life for many years. Cantine was born in Jackson, Michigan (1939) and studied at the University of Iowa (BFA, MA) before moving to Alberta and working as a professor in the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta (1965 – 96). His work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Alberta, FAB Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art among others and is represented in numerous private and public collections.
