Save Event: Laura Owens

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



For her fourth show with Sadie Coles HQ, Laura Owens presents a body of new work. Abstract in style, the eight paintings and three drawings evade easy analysis. The colourful canvases transform under scrutiny, as objects morph into figures, while figurative elements dissolve into abstraction, and other marks gain a new figurative resonance. The aesthetic charm of Owens' work, which glories in pictorial elegance, is deliberately upset by this unsettling experience, which forces the viewer to question different ways of looking.
