This catalogue accompanied the exhibition Laura Owens, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, March – June 2003.

Running the gamut from representation to abstraction, Laura Owens’s paintings suggest a playful nonchalance refreshingly at odds with the heroic discourse that has traditionally surrounded both the medium and the scale in which she has chosen to work. This first monographic museum presentation featured 20 paintings and 15 works on paper from 1997 to 2002 by the Los Angeles artist. Owens’s sources of inspiration range from English embroidery and Chinese and Japanese landscape to her own photography, and she integrates elements such as fabric patterns, collage, and decorative patterns in her painting.
