Laura Owens,
2003

Laura Owens is a painter and installation artist very firmly practicing in the tradition of the post-conceptual art generation. Using bright, color-infused imagery that depicts landscapes, couples kissing, blooming flowers, and dogs howling at the moon, Owens is something of a modern day John William Waterhouse. Working mostly in paint, Owens’ compositions are often reminiscent of the wide, rolling emptiness of Song scholar-paintings, while sharing their tiny exactness with needlepoint. Portraying worlds that are full of mythology and bursting with possibility, Owens is a model for a generation of artists who embrace the constant reinvention of the medium of painting. Praising the artist, MOCA/LA curator Paul Schimmel has declared: “Hers is an art predicated on balancing intuition and intellect, encouraging multiple voices and leveling hierarchies.”
