      'Ensayos' New Paintings by Omar Chacon

      Opening Reception for the artist on Friday, September 13th, 6 to 8pm; Show runs through Nov 2nd, 2013

      We are pleased to announce an exciting exhibition of new paintings on canvas and paper by New York artist, Omar Chacon. Omar 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 his pre-made brushstrokes, layering 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 issues inherent 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, 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.
