This piece was inspired by a pot of red flowers in the sun. The red flowers were illuminated by the sunlight which created an arbor-like shadow. The subtle colors, pop of red and magenta and line work of this abstract artwork ask the viewer to inspect the surface more closely. The art was created with acrylic paint, oil pastels, charcoal, and graphite pencils using various brushes and sandpaper to abrade the surface. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.”
