I was blown away by LA based artist Laura Owens' larger than life exhibition. Her paintings are massive and incredibly captivating; like optical illusions, each painting changes with the distance its viewed from. Thick 3-D layers of paint are applied like giant brush strokes, creating a dramatic visual effect when layered over her neatly silkscreened and hand painted imagery. The work references the digital world, yet still maintains a painterly, expressive quality. Apparently all twelve canvases were made on site and painted within this amazing off the beaten path gallery space, located in downtown LA at Mission Road. The show is a collaboration between the artist and Gavin Brown’s Enterprise. If you need more incentive to make the trek, Ooga Booga has set up shop at the entrance of the space offering a unique selection of art/book/ fashion items in its retail store.
