Vocabularies – Artist Reception this Friday

I’m excited for this Friday! It’s the artist reception for my solo show at Space Gallery – Claremont. The show opened this past Saturday during the Claremont Art Walk, while I was returning from Louisville, Kentucky. I was on a layover in Chicago when my phone notified me that the opening had begun. Since they knew I’d be gone during the opening Space Gallery graciously agreed to also host an artist reception the following Friday – there will be food and drink, live music by Emad Gabra, and I’ll be there happy to discuss my work with anyone interested.

Hope to see you there!

VOCABUALRIES: mixed media drawings by John Otter

SPACE Gallery is pleased to present 

“VOCABULARIES: mixed media drawings by John Otter.”
Show Opening: Saturday, April 1st 6-9PM
Artist Reception: Friday, April 7th 6-10pm

John Otter was born and raised in San Diego, California, where he began his art career as a printmaker. He received his BFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago, and studied at the New York Studio Program.

Otter fell in love with drawing at an early age, filling sketchbooks with pen and ink drawings that hint at the abstract style he would return to later in life. Repetitive patterns, concentric circles, stippling and cross-hatching have remained an integral part of his drawings.

His recent work on paper strives to harmonize disparate concepts, merging notions of the synthetic and the organic, cities and nature, circuitry and water.

Using a variety of techniques and devices, Otter is interested in simplifying complex feelings, ideas and states of mind into visual playgrounds with space for the eye and mind to wander through and explore.
