Synopsis: Laura Owens is among a select group of artists credited with the rebirth of American painting. She has developed a style all her own, moving from landscape to abstraction in 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 constantly experiments and redefines 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 designed by Owens herself, and accompanies an exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Along with paintings from the show, it includes new drawings made exclusively for the publication, as well as several textile works from the museum's collection that inspired her during her residency of Spring 2000.

Book Description: This expansive overview of Laura Owens’s career offers unique insights into the influences and sources behind the pioneering and unconventional work of one of today’s most influential artists.

Book Description Edizioni Charta, 2001. Boston, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, May 31 - September 16, 2001. English Text. 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.
