Laura Owens

Publisher: Kerber Verlag.

Laura Owens is a significant and prominent painter, whose apparently romantic-naive visual language dissolves any separation between abstract and figurative art.Her paintings move between vital colourism and an apparently symbolic representation that portrays both the world of the abyss and the world of dreams.The childlike handwriting in her ornamental paintings raises the issue of the limits of painting as an art form or as part of everyday life.This catalogue publishes works for the first time and accompanies Laura Owens' first solo museum exhibition in Germany, at Kunstmuseum Bonn, 19 September 2011 - 8 January 2012.
