Omar Chacon at Fouladi Projects

“Ensayos by Omar Chacon

chacon20x22Bacanal CanaleteOmar has taken an alchemists approach to his medium, and has formulated a masterfully unique application of paint to surface. The result is paint as building blocks that the artist refers to as “pre-made brushstrokes”, layering his drips or dots to create a dazzling display of eye pleasing beauty reminiscent of traditional indigenous patterns and classical mosaics. For this new body of work, he continues his inventive use of acrylic paint, and aims to experiment beyond color balance and to venture inquisitively into the territory of compositional structure and spatial relations. Hence the title, “Ensayos”, which translated from Spanish, means “essays”. This show will feature works constructed with his signature sculptural technique, filtered through the context of conceptual painting as well as exploring the formal issuesinherent in his craft. 

 

Omar was born in Bogota, Colombia, received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and currently lives and works in New York City. He has received numerous awards and grants for his artistic achievements and has had solo exhibitions in the US, Europe and Mexico and beyond. His exuberant color combinations reflect his enthusiasm for life and functions as a visual metaphor for today’s multicultural world.

 

Please join us for a festive evening of art and libations. The reception will also coincide with Omar’s birthday.

 

 

Show runs through Nov 2nd, 2013
