Ro2 Art will present Edgar Cano;s "South / Realism / X," an exhibition featuring new works by the established Mexican painter.

Cano uses a blend of abstraction and realism to explore the boundaries of memory and heritage. Cano’s work is influenced by dance and theater from his time using drawing and lithography for set design. His compositions recall 19th century portrait painting, yet the realistically rendered figures become smeared, obscured behind pattern or hyper-pigmented veils. They hold hidden, playful symbols. Landscape and figuration become windows surrounded by high-chroma fields and rhythmic geometry.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 8.
