"Each of Otnes" collages incorporates a remarkable range
and depth of knowledge --
not only the technical know-how that flows from his fingertips,
not only the traditional training that he absorbed at the Art Institute and the American Academy of Art in Chicago,
not only the modern photographic-printing-lithographic technology that he has mastered,
not only the influences of other present-day painters that he has adapted to his own vision,
but also the supplementary acquisition of a staggering amount of information about the special subject he is illustrating and illuminating."
-- Jim Hoffman, Graphis Magazine.
