Solo exhibition by Omar Chacon

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.
