Spotlight: Omar Chacon, Queens International 4

The Queens biennial, QI4 at the Queens Museum of Art will be up until April 26th. I am really proud to be a part of such a well curated show and among such a talented group of artists. If you haven't made it out to the museum yet it is definitely worth the trip. For those of you who are unable to make it, I'll be spotlighting artists throughout the duration of the show. 
Fellow SFAI alum and friend, Omar Chacon's "abstract paintings refer to rich colors and patterns of indigenous Latin American textiles. By carefully exploring the limitations and possibilities of the medium, Chacon painstakingly formulates each gesture into building blocks that collectively construct three-dimensional surfaces with a wide spectrum of optical vibrancy." He is currently exhibiting new work at Greene Contemporary. Join me at the opening reception on Wednesday, February 11 from 6 to 9 p.m.
