LA-based painter and respected instructor at Otis, Nathan Ota, will be opening his new solo show at the venerable La Luz de Jesus Gallery in September. “An Unforseen Homecoming” will include his signature creatures of the forest, hybrids of wood and other more familiar forms but perhaps with a new palette judging from this teaser pic.

A couple of drawings after the jump, possible studies for other paintings?
