Laura Owens: LA Artist With Larger Than Life Exhibit

By Jessie Groveman 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 […]

Both are vehicles of impact through the creation of conversations, often without adequate language to convey the urgent need for art. But then again, why is there an urgent need for art when poverty is rampant? As disease, inequality, sexism, war […]

Obssesions In Art and Love – Man Ray/Lee Miller At The Legion Of Honor
