"Fiery red and warm, creamy yellow tones dominate this piece, punctuated with a dark inky black shape," says Charles. "The painting was created as I listened to the blending of traditional latin songs with today's more contemporary rhythms."

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.”
