Artists in Show

Erik Otto

Tomorrow is Never PromisedSeptember 2 - October 4, 2010




fabric8 presented the first half of Tomorrow Is Never Promised, a solo show featuring new works by artist Erik Otto. The second half of the show debuted the following week at White Walls.

In his largest solo show to date, filling two San Francisco galleries, Erik Otto illustrates the themes of struggle one must face in order to achieve growth – self-fulfillment versus self-destruction and how the transient nature of time dictates the uncertainty of life. The new body of work, which is more abstract and expressive then his past pieces, addresses the idea of facing one’s personal fears in order to reach true potential and real progress.

Erik Otto exhibits in galleries nationally and internationally. With an education in Illustration, Design, Screen Print, and Street Art, Otto practices his art across multiple disciplines. In addition to painting, he has designed and built large-scale installations, theatre sets, retail storefronts, private commissions, and independent film sets. Otto recently completed the acclaimed Artist-in-Residence program at Recology San Francisco and is committed to using recycled paint and materials to produce work that is both expressive and conceptual. He received his BFA from San Jose State University and currently lives and works in the Mission District of San Francisco.

Tomorrow Is Never Promised was on exhibit from September 2 through October 4, 2010 at fabric8; as well as from September 11 through October 3, 2010 at White Walls Gallery.
