This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Los Angeles-based artist Laura Owens' work blends abstract and representational imagery.  Her work draws inspiration from English embroidery, Chinese and Japanese landscape painting, European and American modernism, and her own photography, often creating collages and fine line drawings.  She acknowledges film, computer, and television imagery among her influences.  Her paintings are often grandly scaled, address color and vary in the application of paint to the canvas.

Owens studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (1992)
California Institute of the Arts, Valencia (1994); and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine (1994).

Laura Owens's paintings have been exhibited in group exhibitions in museums in the United States and Europe, including L.A.C.E. Annual, Los Angeles Contemporary Art Exhibitions (1994); Wunderbar, Kunstverein, Hamburg (1996); Hot Coffee, Artists Space, New York (1997); Young Americans 2: New American Art, Saatchi Gallery, London (1998); and Nach-Bild, Kunsthalle Basel and Examining Pictures, Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (1999).

Since 1995, she has had solo shows in galleries in the United States, Germany, England, and Italy, including Gavin Brown's enterprise, New York (1996, 1998) and Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne (1999).
