Gala-actic!! MOCAD’s 2018 Gala tonight.
Angel Otero's "Surfing a Mind Wave", 2017, oil paint and fabric collaged on paper, 29.92 x 22.44 inches (paper); 31 x 23 inches (framed) Available to bid or to buy now on Paddle8 https://paddle8.com/auction/mocad/ Angel Otero is best known for his process-based paintings. Otero's 'deformation' approach to painting his works, first across glass and then once dry, flaying the dried paint and reconstructing the composition anew across large canvases, is representative of how the artist perceives the process of reconfiguring both personal and historical narratives. Otero’s work sometimes uses process as a way of confronting deep, personal memories. Instead of representing his life through art, he archives moments within it by creating opportunities of surprise and discovery. His work is a constant negotiation between the individual and art history. #angelotero @mocadetroit @lehmannmaupin
