Gabriela Adriana Otero (Lugano, Buenos Aires, 1973) is an Argentinian visual artist and sculptor. At the age of 12, she began to be linked to artistic work at the Escuela de Bellas Artes Lola Mora, where she later received the diploma of National Drawing Teacher. She also graduated as a National Professor of Sculpture and Painting at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón, now the Universidad Nacional de las Artes. In her prolific career, in addition to attending workshops of the renowned sculptor Antonio Pujía, she has taught art in schools, worked as a set designer and costume designer in Italy, and was also part of “Hazcruzado”, an artistic collective of visual-multimedia experimentation where scenography, projections, music, and contemporary dance were integrated.

It is in 2004 when she concretizes her language and visual discourse in the production that the artist calls “mini-sculptures”. This work has been awarded and widely exhibited in Argentina and in countries such as England, Italy, and Spain. Also, many of these pieces are part of public and private collections nationally and internationally.

As in the selection presented by Arte Original, most of her figures are half-length or torsos. Sometimes they are only suggested from the deformation, and others are perfectly defined and outlined. They reveal themselves to us slender, foreshortened, dancing, reclining, at rest, posing, alone or in couples. Although she has experimented with making reliefs, assemblages, and has worked with materials such as glass, wood, bronze, and aluminum, the work that Otero has persistently developed, until today, has maintained a visual and content coherence. Her artworks are always small in size and revolve around a representation of the human figure that reminds us of classical Greek sculpture but reinterpreted from the contemporary.
