A painting bringing out the best of beautiful coloring produced by coincidence.

偶然に生まれる美しい色彩を活かした絵画
靈活地運用了偶然間生成的美麗色彩的繪畫作品
灵活地运用了偶然间生成的美丽色彩的绘画作品
우연히 만들어지는 아름다운 색채를 살린 회화


The paint undulates and sends up spray like a radiating aurora. This image created with oil paint mixed with beeswax was transferred onto paper using a thin film. By partitioning the undulating color patterns with similarly gradated sharp-edged straight lines, it also demonstrates a liveliness that seems to correspond to the flow of time. As the title “The Sphinx as Coloration” he chose for his individual exhibition held in 1992 indicates, Kano, who constantly quotes the decalcomania developed by the Surrealists, entrusts the control of coloring to contingency transcending human effort. This is one of a series of altogether eighty-five works produced before and after 1990.
