Nazca Lines Series
Growing up in Peru Caceres was always inspired by the art found in nature. He has always had a great obsession with forms – from lines to organic shapes. One of his inspirations while creating the “Abstract Lines” series was the Nazca Lines found in the southern desert of Peru. There is a mixture of geometric shapes and organic shapes. He was not only intrigued by the lines and how they looked, but was also fascinated by the depth of the lines that were cleared and cut into the ground. In some places, he has added white lines in between as if they were channels that created large images on the ground. He thought about the process of clearing the stones, marking a path and revealing the white earth beneath. That became an artistic layering process by adding more paint to the lines, a path to communicate in a deeper, more universal way.
