Angel Otero: Material Discovery

February 8 – May 5, 2013

The SCAD Museum of Art presents the first large-scale solo museum exhibition by artist Angel Otero. "Material Discovery" 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.
