Long Description
Beginning with archival materials and his own photographs and drawings, German artist Heribert C. Ottersbach paints subjects--often architectural--that allow him to reevaluate Modernism. He calls his paintings "abstract, geometric figurations of a society disciplined by 'education.'"
