Photo Tour: Omar Chacon at Margaret Thatcher Projects

I don't know much about Omar Chacon--he is from Colombia but was educated in the U.S. But I just love these manic, colorful paintings. This show was up in December at Margaret Thatcher Gallery in New York. (You might have wondered what she was doing since her stint as British PM.) These pictures are hard to photograph--if you get any distance on them, they become kind of a blur of color. This is why I have a lot of close-ups and details. That said, they are well-worth seeing in person if you have the opportunity.
