Biography from Maloney Fine Art:
For the past 30 years, Joel Otterson has made sculpture, which combines aspects of domestic handicraft with traditional sculptural materials. Copper pipe, woodworking, pottery, porcelain, china, earthenware, concrete, marble, stained glass, quilting and lace are the raw materials of Joel’s sculpture.  Utilizing practices such as sewing, and quilting, traditionally associated with feminine craft making, Joel turns these humble materials into muscular art.  The artist blurs the line between high and low culture, art and craft to create poignant sculptures, which are both utilitarian and de-constructivist sculptural objects.  Through this endeavor, exploring Rock N Roll, Baseball, he pursues what it means to be an American.
Otterson, who was born in Los Angeles in 1959, spent most of his childhood in Oregon, attended Parsons School of Design in New York City, where he remained for two decades.  Joel was one of the youngest artists ever selected for a one-person exhibition in the Projects Room of the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1987). 

The artist’s work is included in the permanent collections of Cincinnati Art Museum, The Broad Foundation, The Israel Museum and many others.
Joel Otterson’s work was included in the 1993 Venice Biennale and will be included in “Made in L.A” the first California Biennial to be held at the Hammer Museum, summer 2012.
The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
