Verena Otterbach

Location: Mexico

Born in Mexico City, 1967. Fifteen years ago she entered the art world under the wing of Cuban master Carlos García de la Nuez. Since then, she has explored painting as first artistic discipline complemented with photography.

Through a large format, the absence of color, everyday scenes and their relationship with photography, her paintings endeavor to deliver a universal journey through time and memories.

The artist works within a long tradition that takes the photographic image as a method of apprehension and representation of reality; her work does not end up trying to emulate (life) with photography, quite the contrary, her pieces become a true pictorial representation, created for and from the “painting" itself, with multiple shades inherited from the finest world of expressionism.
