Owens, Laura, 2017

Published by The Whitney Museum of American Art

Since the early 1990s, Laura Owens (b. 1970) has challenged traditional assumptions about figuration and abstraction in her pioneering approach to painting. Created in close collaboration with the artist on the occasion of her mid-career survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art, this inventive and expansive book features an incisive introduction by Scott Rothkopf, critical essays, literary texts, and short commentaries on a variety of subjects related to Owens's broad interests, which range from folk art and needlework to comics and wallpaper. Reflections by more than twenty of Owens's fellow artists, collaborators, assistants, dealers, family members, and friends offer an array of perspectives on her work at different periods in her life, beginning with her high school years in Ohio and ending with her current exhibition. A rich trove of more than a thousand images, drawn from the artist's personal archive and largely unpublished before now, includes personal correspondence, journals, academic transcripts, handwritten notes, source material, exhibition announcements, clippings, and installation photographs. Together, these elements offer a rare and intimate look at how an artist might make her way in the world as well as how art gets made, movements take hold, and relationships evolve over time.

Each cover of this edition is unique and hand screen printed in Laura Owens' studio.

ISBN: 9783037643921

Each spring, Ringi­er pub­lishes its past ye­ar busi­ness figu­res in a comprehensive annu­al report. Typically for Ringi­er, it is not your run-of-the-mill annu­al report. In­ternatio­nally acclaimed artists have been de­si­g­ning this publi­cati­on, un­tram­meled by major re­stricti­ons since 1997 making the annu­al report a true work of art. It has beco­me very popu­lar, fas­cinating bo­th art lo­vers and col­lec­tors all over the world. The annu­al report is im­­pressive pro­of of art as an inte­gral part of Ringi­er corpora­te cul­ture. The successful fe­at of ba­lance be­tween sober figu­res and modern art im­pres­ses the fi­nanci­al world while exacting excite­ment from the cultu­ral eli­te. Current and past annu­al reports may be downloa­ded he­re. You will also find a link if you wish to or­der the print versi­on.

Hardcover, hand-bound, with 20 screen-printed images in 6 colors on 22 pages.

Edition of 100 with 15 AP’s.

 

"Fruits and Nuts is a handmade board book by Laura Owens that takes its title from a play on the joke about California being full of fruits and nuts. The pages of each book are hand-glued with actual newsprint from different Californian 1960s newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Berkeley Barb, and Los Angeles Times, and then silkscreened, making each book truly unique. Inside pages are screenprinted with an illustrated alphabet of fruits and nuts. Covers are hand-painted by the artist, and vary in color. Each copy is entirely handmade and features different original newsprint on each page."

CAVEPAINTING, 2002

Laura Owens, Peter Doig, and Chris Ofili ; Margaret Weatherford (ed.)

Published in conjunction with the exhibition Cave Painting at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, February - March 2002.

 

"Cave Painting explores the notion that painting has become further and further removed from contemporary art. Artists Peter Doig, Laura Owens and Chris Ofili defend this idea by claiming that a painting’s strength is that it can survive on its own. These painters are more interested in restoring belief rather then indulging in cynicism or irony. They explain their process within a philosophical context that rejects easy answers, immediacy or pretentiousness."
