About

An extension of the larger paintings, these collaged works share the same visual gravity as the hanging works. Although the work lives within a frame, it also retains its sculptural, three-dimensional quality. The painting offers a dense, textured surface of “oil skins,” contrasting with the clean white background of the panel. Otero's distinct “oil skin” paintings involve traditional painting methods while also challenging conventions of the pictorial field through thick, built-up surfaces that produce a sculptural effect. When creating an “oil skin” work, he begins by reproducing his chosen image in thick oil paint onto a large plate of glass. Once the paint is almost completely dry, Otero scrapes the “oil skin” off the glass and drapes and collages it onto the canvas, allowing the paint to pick up creases, bumps, and other imperfections during the process. The result is an obscured and abstract version of the original image of inspiration that pushes the boundaries of painting both conceptually and formally.
