Item description for Laura Owens by Laura Owens, Pieranna Cavalchini, Anne Hawley & Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum ...

American Laura Owens is among a select group of artists credited with the rebirth of painting. She has developed a style all her own, moving from landscape to abstraction with energetic thick brushstrokes, fanciful childlike doodles, or sophisticated fine line drawings. "Each painting can act as a question," she says, and, demonstrating a wide and imaginative range, she's constantly experimenting and changing her work. "Ultimately, you want to make the painting that you want to be with, not one that is constantly telling you everything it knows. Who wants to be with something or someone like that? It's more fun to be with someone who is willing to go out on a limb." This book is being designed by Owens herself to accompany an exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and will include, along with paintings from the show, new drawings made exclusively for the publication, as well as several textile works from the museum's collection that inspired her while she served as artist-in-residence in the Spring of 2000.

Reviews - What do customers think about Laura Owens?

Marevelously Laura Owens  Nov 9, 2006
The book contained fewer pictures and more information than I had hoped for, but completely makes up for it by including all kinds of little doodles in the margins. The book gives good background of Owens, and the overall feel of the book gives you a real sense of her as an artist. It had enough pictures to keep me happy, and the right information to make me want to read.
