This event has ended.

Janet Borden, Inc. presents 13 Colors, a new installation of work by HANNO OTTEN. Based on his Farbenlehre, Colorblocks, and Lichtbilder series, this extraordinary installation is a new development of Otten’s work. Pure vivid color is Otten’s language.

In these photographs, Otten literally dissects color photography and uses the individual elements to create unique images. 156 pages of lush bands of color hang from the wall in this installation, surrounding the room in a wild physical cacophony.

Otten’s new work continues to explore the abstract, with new approaches and refinements. He once again 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 interpretation.

Hanno Otten was born in 1954, and lives in Berlin. His work has been exhibited worldwide, in such locations as Leipzig, Cologne, Los Angeles, and New York. He is also known for sculpture and installation pieces, which are also available through the gallery
