“Formation” by Erik Otto

Erik Otto is a mixed-media artist who brings together multiple disciplines spanning from traditional paintings to light sculpture and site-specific installations to express fleeting moments of change and discovery. The source of his work is often autobiographical yet void of being overly representational or literal resulting in open-ended visual metaphors that capture our minds and spirits.

With over 10 years of experience, Otto has held exhibitions in San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Mexico City and Vancouver.

We’re looking forward to sharing these wonderful collections with you and seeing what the other participating galleries will showcase on this special evening of art! See you there!
