Youngers is a champion of the MAXIMAL, a force that reclaims storytelling, craftsmanship, and the material presence of art where 'more' really is 'more.   

Reclaimed wood, his primary material is transformed into complex sculptures that are rough yet refined, contemporary, yet somehow seminal or folk.  In his inimitable style, Youngers deals with the difficult topics of war, greed, destruction and the forces that perpetuate them.  His characters bearing witness like a cast of canaries in our coal mine called earth.

Some pieces are more pointed than others; social criticism quite prevalent under the cloak of humor or veil of surreality that is signature to his work. 

Environmental commentary is inherent in every piece that Otto creates.  All the material he uses is recycled or salvaged.  An avid organic gardener and arborist, he has planted over 150 trees on his property alone, a contemporary 'Johnny Appleseed' with a penchant for evergreens.
