Fair Enough: Traveling Incognita?

Fair Enough: And I'm Off




MIAMI--I'm still in the thick of looking and photographing, downloading and editing. But I couldn't pass up this opportunity to share the art world version of Where's Waldo, created unexpectedly at the Thatcher Projects booth at Pulse, as this stylish woman passed in front of an Omar Chacon painting.

How fun to have captured this!

I wouldn't call it a 'painting' exactly. I've seen this piece at the Saatchi gallery. Absolutely fun textured piece. But what DO you call it?

wish I could see this painting up close.

At first I didn't believe it could be a real person.

Fabulous! Hope fun is being had!

@ faunawolf... It's made entirely of acrylic paint, created gesturally, and is on a canvas: I'd call it a painting! Like most of Thatcher Projects artists, Chacon is just using a traditional medium in a unique way. He recontexutalizes our notions of what a painting should be or do, and has a helluva fun time doing it, I think.

Have you seen Chacon's show up at Thatcher Projects right now? If you haven't you should. It's amazing--so full of energy and enthusiasm and life!

Wow! At first I thought the shirt was the very same pattern. I have heard about buying a painting to match a sofa - how about, to match a wardrobe?

I was at Art Basel & missed this. I saw others by the artist @ Margaret Thatcher in NYC yesterday. His work is so cool! Thanks for a great post.
