Omar's collaboration with Odabashian is a hand knotted representation of one of his original sketches where, straight out of grad school, he explored the concepts of identity, color and relationships between different peoples and customs. Chacon's wonderful use of color serves as a reference for today's multicultural world. Chacon's work is focused on the colorful diversity across cultures, and in his masterful use of combinations, he describes the junction of histories and backgrounds fusing in wonderfully disorderly way. The resulting paintings are impressively inventive with his unique use of this medium.
