In the exhibition MESALINAS OPERATICAS, Omar Chacon has created luminous and visually tactile abstract paintings that continue his exploration of color and process.
Chacon begins by pouring a mixture of acrylic paint and medium onto a surface to dry. He sees each pour as a unique and individual brushstroke that he then arranges on a canvas to create his paintings. He has invented his own paint formula – and found innovative ways to build layers, color combinations and compositions. Using reds, yellows, oranges and turquoise blues, Chacon composes the lyrical Opera series. A vibrant orchestration of colors and patterns reminiscent of musical notes on a page. Never far from his Colombian roots he fantasizes about a tropical opera – merging the old and the new worlds. An autochthonous cultural event and experience that would feed the soul.
