The change in the season heralds the first frost, painting the grasses with a white glaze. The textures give the viewer the feeling of the crisp chill in the air. Silk tissue and molding pastes create the textures.

Getting to Know Charles

Santa Fe-based artist Charles Kacin creates abstract artwork that resemble the natural weathering of surfaces. Charles studies the interaction of various materials and their resulting surface texture. Inspired by natural processes, his artistic process involves both creation and destruction. To begin a work, he layers acrylic paint, oil pastels, charcoal and graphite. Then, he uses sandpaper, pencils, screwdrivers, scrapers and even electric sanders to distress the surfaces of his work. While he controls the physical aspect of the paintings, he leaves emotional interpretations to the viewer. He says, “My work invites the viewer to make their own reality from the shapes, forms, and colors I present on the canvas.”
