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.

Jorge L. Caceres

Jorge Caceres is a DC-based artist who was raised in Lima, Peru. Growing up in such a visually profuse environment and influenced by his Spanish and Italian origins, Jorge’s multicultural background allows him the unique ability to convey his creativity through painting. As a self-taught artist, he combines abstract pieces of diverse colors and shapes, a vehicle he uses to express a myriad of feelings and emotions.

Caceres studied architecture at Ricardo Palma, one of Lima’s most renowned universities, but found himself being drawn to the state of freedom painting offered him. Following that sense of freedom, Jorge moved to the United States in the early 2000s. It was at that time that he decided that art was essential to his identity.

He started working at an art gallery, where he learned about the art market. Later, he became a design consultant for a prominent European company specializing in interior design with a studio in DC. He gained valuable experience working with high end clients, finding the right design solutions for their homes. His love of architecture, interior design, travel and art led to his role as a trusted advisor. Over time, more and more of his clients started asking Jorge for commissioned works of art. He has created pieces in Washington, DC, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris and beyond.
