'Rising Sun' by Erik Otto
Erik Otto's show Rising Sun will be up for just a few more days at Luna Rienne Gallery in San Francisco's Mission District. Otto has a passion for creative exploration and balances his time between painting and design, blending multiple influences into one distinct style that has been presented in distinguished galleries, film/theater sets, street corners, and even a parklet. The show Rising Sun represents Otto’s latest perspective on the increasingly challenging times artists face in a city undergoing very apparent transition, and depicts a new chapter that hopes for a brighter future. Competing forces, reinvention, and renewal play a role, and are all connected to a larger story of survival. This collection builds on his last body of work, Rising Tides, which centered around the concept that turbulent times invoke a need to make peace through acceptance.
