The works of Paula Otegui are real battlefields. Not only because, literally, the artist often represents disputed human groups, submerged in more or less peaceful, more or less chaotic plastic territories, but mainly because other no less evident struggles take place in them: the eternal contest between the graphic and the pictorial, between the line and the stain, between the line and the colour.
As a sounding board, Paula Otegui spreads the tensions. With an impeccable technique, it superimposes figurative, abstract, geometric patterns, stains, creating a complex visual plot where the gaze becomes abysmal. For this, he uses a whole series of plastic resources, contained by a strict composition that avoids any dispersion.
