Eduardo Chacon explores the diversity of colors in still life paintings from his studio in Taos, New Mexico. He focuses on "chiaroscuro", the concept of light and shadow. He was born and raised in Taos surrounded by the art community there. He comments: "To take something two-dimensional and have the viewer percieve the peice as three dimensional is the challenge. The viewer neeeds to travel through the painting, so to speak. Tahtis to say, a feeling is accomplished in making a canvas or panel look as though it is three dimensional. Atmosphere is the key. The painting has to have atmosphere within. It is as if air flows around the objects. I learn with every piece I do. I strive to build on what I've learned and hope to always paint the nexpiece better." He makes his home and paints out of his studio in Taos, New Mexico, where his still life paintings come to life in the Northern New Mexican light.
