Owens, LauraBook - 2017
A richly illustrated, expansive mid-career survey of the stand-out American artist's pioneering and influential work Since the early 1990s, Laura Owens (b. 1970) has challenged traditional assumptions about figuration and abstraction in her pioneering-and at times controversial-approach to painting. This inventive mid-career survey of Owens's work takes the form of an expansive five-hundred-page book, interweaving writing on the artist's work with excerpts from a wide variety of texts. Including an essay by Scott Rothkopf, this richly illustrated volume presents Owens's paintings within a rich trove of archival imagery that includes exhibition announcements, installation photographs, personal correspondence, and source material, most of which has never before been published. Reflections by fellow artists, collaborators, assistants, dealers, family, and friends contribute an array of perspectives on Owens's working practice and her numerous achievements.
