EXHIBIT ON VIEW JUNE 8 – JULY 6, 2024: Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino presents drawings by Venezuelan artist Alejandro Otero.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Born in El Manteco, Venezuela, Alejandro Otero (1921–1990) was a painter and sculptor who played a leading role in the history of modernist abstraction in his native land. From 1939 to 1945, he studied at the Escuela de Artes Plásticas y Artes Aplicadas de Caracas. Awarded a scholarship to move to Paris, he lived there between 1945 and 1952. It was in Paris that he began producing some of his most important bodies of work, including Las cafeteras (the Coffeepots), painted between 1946 and 1948, a series that marked his transition from figuration to abstraction. The canvases of this series were exhibited at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas in 1949, an event that aroused great controversy, opening the way for the emergence of geometric abstraction in Venezuela.
