Janet Borden Is pleased to announce a new exhibition, BOULEVARD, by the German artist HANNO OTTEN. This is Otten’s fifth exhibition at the gallery, and it continues his visual discourse on the nature of color. Pure vivid color is Otten’s language. In these photograms and photographs, Otten literally dissects color photography and uses the individual elements to create unique images. Lush bands of color comprise the Boulevard Section. These are complemented by Otten's elegantly composed unique photograms, or Lichtbilder (Light Pictures). Otten’s new work continues to explore the abstract, with new approaches and refinements. These photographs embrace a more organic and personal approach to photography than in his previous studies. Once again he manipulates color and light to create a modern palette of vivid hues. As in his earlier work, Otten insists on the primacy of color, forgoing any literal or narrative imagery.
