Angel Otero 

When: Oct. 19-Feb. 4 2013

With their kinetic, physical works, the Abstract Expressionists blurred the line between painting and sculpture. Angel Otero takes up that interdimensional mantle. Like many of the artists who show at CAM, Otero has a Chicago connection: He left his native Puerto Rico to study at the Art Institute's school there. His oil paintings undergo a two-stage process. First, he layers plate glass with paint in reverse compositional order. Next, he peels and scrapes it off the glass and affixes the painting-skin to canvas. Born from his efforts to conserve expensive materials while in art school, Otero's process relinquishes the fundamental method of painterly control—the gestural brushstroke. Currently based in New York, Otero was named among the 50 most collectible artists by Art+Auction magazine in June. His new works are on display through Feb. 4. Museum admission is $5, or free members. —Chris Vitiello
