The most comprehensive volume on Laura Owens to date surveys the contemporary artist's career from richly varied literary and curatorial perspectives. Among the most inventive contemporary artists working today, Laura Owens's work is revered by critics and fellow artists alike. I...nformed by art history, her work possesses the rare ability to reference familiar styles without their stultifying weight, crafting compositions at once playful and rigorous. This volume surveys Owens's entire career, featuring a comprehensive selection of the artist's celebrated work, including her most recent series, much heralded since its debut over the last year in several shows across the world. These new paintings--stretched, screen-printed, impastoed with thick daubs of paint and volcanic rock--bear her familiar colors and free swirls but depart in their abstract form. Essays by artists, writers, and art historians provide multiple perspectives on an artist creating new directions in her medium.
