You Are Here.
Nov 25th through Dec 24th
You are Here — a setting, a place. You are at the center of the map, surrounded by buildings, streets, and fields — a neighborhood, a block. This exhibition of over 30 new drawings and paintings by Nate Otto is a rumination of place, and an exploration of cityscape. Imagined settings are twisted in stylized renderings, viewed from inside and above, simplified, and abstracted.
Nate Otto is a Chicago based artist and illustrator, and a graduate of Columbia college. You Are Here is his third solo exhibition in Chicago in the last three years, and his most ambitious to date. Nate is a full time image maker, and in addition to his self motivated work, he has done murals and commercial work for Nike, Facebook, Basecamp, Chase Bank and many others. Nate makes art every day.
