Getting to Know Charles

Abstract mixed-media artist Charles Kacin draws inspiration from the natural weathering and erosion of surfaces. He layers acrylic paint, oil pastels, charcoal and graphite before applying sandpaper, pencils, screwdrivers, scrapers and even electric sanders to distress the surfaces of his work. This process of creation and destruction is a personal journey that Charles explores with each new piece. The interaction of materials and resulting surface texture is a core component of Charles’s 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.”
