Recently, I was introduced to a wonderful artist by the name of SACHA. Working in oils and using muted rustic tones, SACHA’s paintings are at once contemporary and reaching back to the Spanish classical painting tradition. This is the painting which drew me in:
The Seated Gipsy
Have always enjoyed South America's writers' use of Magical Realisim. In my opinion, if it were translated into art, this is what it would look like. And, it was love of his paintings, at first sight.
He has found a way to mix paints by making circles, scratching the surface of the canvas and bringing out the whiteness of the canvas with a simple toothpick. These circles of movement are brought out in a new technique he calls Circulism. Up close one can see and feel the texture of the tiny and large circles. One can also see how with one color can create shades by just applying more or less circles.
Details of the face of The Seated Gipsy
(in the original the circles are evident, in this copy not so much)
With Circulism, SACHA has used paints on all types of surfaces such as canvas, wood, cardboard, paper, and glass.
Three Women is my favorite. Am seriously considering getting a print of his original which btw are available for most of his works at http://fineartamerica.com/art/paintings/sacha/all
|Lovers with Fetus|
|Woman in Red Chair with Grey Fan|
Another beautiful painting evident of his Spanish influence.
