DESCRIPTION

Peter Otto’s work reports on the constituent factors of a human condition continually shifting between beguiling and highly disturbing. He reveals the state to which humanity – ever tested by social, cultural and political forces – bends, breaks and at times collapses. His paintings and sculptures show a reality emerging from the darkest moments. The themes are somber; the work though is delicately formed and teeming with graceful facture.

Otto, who lives in Arnhem, The Netherlands, has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe including projects at Museum Beelden aan Zee in Scheveningen, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Boÿmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Galerie Reuten and Galerie Swart in Amsterdam, the Museum Kurhaus Kleve and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. This exhibition is generously supported by grants from the Cultural Services in the USA / Consulate General of the Netherlands and Materiaalfonds, Amsterdam.
