LAURA OWENS

Biography

Artist Detail Image

 

Laura Owens is a painter and installation artist who practices in the tradition of the post-conceptual art generation. She often uses bright, color-infused imagery that depicts landscapes, couples kissing, blooming flowers, and dogs howling at the moon. Working mostly in paint, Owens' compositions are often reminiscent of the wide, rolling emptiness of Song scholar-paintings. 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. 
