About this Art
Visually ambiguous, this work by Erik Otto is nevertheless a delightful springboard for the sort of thematic speculation that true appreciators of art long for and so seldom encounter these days. The precarious fate of the structures (one actually enveloped by the swirling tide of blue) certainly implies or alludes to our own uncertain status in an indifferent world. The crucial motif, however, is the gleaming, diamond-like sphere within that colorful current. It resembles an eye - the eye of a storm, perhaps - but it has a certain "solar" quality that reminds one of that famous comment by the existentialist Albert Camus; the one in which the French writer affirmed that there was "an invincible summer" secreted and safe inside his soul.

Erik Otto is a mixed-media artist working professionally in the creative disciplines of painting, sculpture and site-specific installation for over 10 years. Erik has held exhibitions nationally in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington DC and internationally in Vancouver, Mexico City, and Berlin. He was selected for the SF Recology Artist-in-Residence Program, received the VSCO Artist Initiative Grant, and produced work for YBCA Bay Area Now 7. He currently has work held in the private collections of the Grand Hyatt, Microsoft, LinkedIn, One Medical Group, and Uber.

Avid cyclist, explorer of the outdoor world, and firm believer of taking risks, he once self-initiated and self-funded a 6-month long artist residency in the middle of Mexico City that resulted in a pop-up exhibition in an abandoned building just prior to it’s demolition.

Erik grew up in the South Bay Area, lived in San Francisco for 12 years, and is now based in Brooklyn, NY.
