‘ Omar Chacan’s vibrant abstract paintings refer to rich colors and patterns of indigenous Latin American textiles, but fuse these formal and cultural traditions into a process that is very much his own recipe. The effect of this sancocho (“stew”), as Chacan calls it, is an experiential mixture of European and South American histories that infuse cultural signifiers into Abstraction.
