‘ALWAYS LATE TO THE PARTY’ is the second solo exhibition by Douglas Cantor with Guts Gallery that presents a series of new large scale paintings and an installation.
The latest works in this exhibition reveal Cantor’s experience of being an immigrant and how his culture has come to exist and be reshaped by moving away from his home in Colombia.
Starting from behind, the feeling that comes with, for whatever reason, being removed from your familiar context to start a new life. Re-learning all the basic things that are taken for granted in our familiar surroundings, working out your way around things, your shortcuts, your interactions and the space you are entitled to, always being outside of the joke. These are all feelings too familiar to the immigrant.
