Charles explains that he began this artwork with handmade paper that he painted and applied to the canvas, and then distressed. "Layers of paint and oil pastel create a rich history for the surface and further enhance the texture of the distressed paper," he says. "I was inspired by an old wall which had seen many years of neglect." White and off-white contrast with dark black freeform shapes.

Charles Kacin

Santa Fe, New Mexico

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.”
