Ernesto Cánovas


22.12.2022 – 22.03.2023

The idea of retrofuture, somewhere between the evocative and the artificial, accompanies Cánovas’ work almost from the beginning,
with references to history, cinema and popular culture.
The iconography conceived by Cánovas, whose technique blurs the boundaries between the notions of original and copy, appropriation and loan,
manipulation and authenticity alike, symbolically reinforces a proposalthat captivates the viewer with its immediate beauty while leading him into a territory of uncertainty.
The past, even the most immediate, is transformed into a distant antiquity, just like our time, which fades daily.
