A concern for statuary and the desire to use it to represent mankind form the backbones running through the work of Aurora Cañero, who has been able to modulate her postulates without being absorbed by contextual tendencies that either fall into crude academicism or give themselves over thoughtlessly to experimentation in a quest that seems to find its sole justification in that it is a feature of dogmatic contemporaneity. Javier Rubio Nomblot has pointed out that Aurora Cañero's sculpture enfolds a tension "between what has just happened - a past barely hinted at - and what is going to happen next - discovery, movement, metamorphosis. Each of her works relates a decisive event, that instant in which mankind, inhabiting the centre of the universe, comes up against its moment of truth." Through the especially subtle narrative tendency in her work, Aurora Cañero's pieces define a small world in which things that are on the edge of the fantastic, or at least the unusual, happen.
