"This piece was one of 1 of 9 paintings I produced for my last show, DISTANCIA, that took place in an abandoned building in Mexico City at the start of this year. Every piece in the show had a similar second piece that was slightly altered to create a visual rhythm, but this painting was the one wild card piece that stood proudly on it's own. For me, this piece was the one piece that summed what the entire show was about — breaking away from structure to give way to a new perspective and flow while finding peace in the process." - Erik Otto
