Erik Otto is an American abstract artist working in the creative disciplines of mixed-media painting, neon sculpture, and site-specific installation. Otto received a BFA from San Jose State University in California. His work has been shown in exhibitions nationally in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco and internationally in Vancouver and Mexico City.
Expressing the understanding of instability and uncertainty through patience and resilience, his work is about an outlook of acceptance as a means of moving forward. Known as the force behind all living things, Otto explores the many symbolic qualities of water through nonlinear landscapes flooded with movement and free of boundaries. Compositions immersed with emotive strokes — pushing and pulling — depict the balance of turbulent and serene. The circular form, a signature motif representing the notion that life is both coming and going, emerges and recedes from view similar to the shift of a passing season.
