Lot Essay

'Many of her paintings use landscape elements as a major part of their subject matter, but in a breezily oneiric manner. They reflect certain aspects of the familiar world, but at the same time offer blueprints for an entirely imaginary one. This is not a distortion, but an accentuation of a southern Californian reality in which every view out of the window is a reminder of invented geographies and of uncontrolled climate experiments'
(R. Mengham, in Laura Owens, exh. cat., Kunsthalle Zrich, Zurich, 2006, p. 25).
