About

Otero draws from art history as well as his own memories and past, particularly his memory as a child growing up in Puerto Rico, as sources of inspiration for his paintings and sculptures. The reference he begins with, which might be two or three dimensional, is obscured by time and memory, leaving an image or object that hints at something, but like a memory, is not completely recognizable or tangible. Collecting, preserving and protecting are themes that emerge consistently in the work. He collects and then preserves his memories by using them as a source of inspiration, but then pushes them to the farthest point of abstraction. Process plays a key role in his work. An exploration and experimentation of materials leads to innovative forms. He allows the process to lead him and embraces unexpected results that occur when working with materials that behave in unpredictable ways.
