FEATURED THIS WEEK! Check out this exhibition by Puerto Rican visual artist residing in Brooklyn, NY Ángel Otero, at the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art in Savannah, GA. Hurry!, it will be up until May 5, 2013.
This Sunday I revisited this exhibition. The pieces are visually stunning, yet they present the artists' very personal approach to painting through unconventional methods. Here is SCAD MOA's description:
"Material Discovery" by Angel Otero features new paintings and original sculpture alongside a selection of recent works. A rising star in the contemporary art world, Otero is known for his process-based approach to painting, specifically his practice of creating “oil skins” that are made from paint poured onto glass and peeled off in dry sheets. These skins are then grafted onto the artist’s canvas to create assemblage works composed of additional materials such as resin, spray paint and silicone. The resulting works are simultaneously collage and décollage and present a dynamic, fresh approach to contemporary painting. http://bit.ly/11jdIwA
