Otterson's art combines fine art with craft, sculpture with tapestry. He was born in Oregon and educated at Parsons. You can see (not necessarily in these pieces) a wide variety of materials--sea shells, fabric, piping, marble, stained glass, concrete and much more. You have to examine these pieces closely if you want to see these various components.
Otterson was one of the youngest artists tohave a solo show in the Museum of Modern Art (NYC)'s Projects Room. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
