Stefan Ottos work is recognized by an approach of investigative uncertainties. Whether it be through cleverly manipulated videos or when he’s trying to dissect the male ego or as in his new body of work dealing with the most classical of all motives: the landscape. Nothing is ever unambiguos or assertive. Otto twists and turns reality and lets the work-process stand as a metaphor for the various layers that make up the human experience.
Otto works in a variety of media – painting, photography, video, installations sculpture and text. Often combining them all into a larger narrative. This time his work focuses on the environment, or rather human interference reflected back as nature. Toxic colors, waste and the future as a fleeting sensation.
