This event has ended.

Owen’s first exhibition since 2004, and his tenth with the gallery, finds the artist in a new place, opening up a new palette, and engaging new forms that echo his interest in the grid of earlier years.  Veering away from his exotic and exuberant “Threader” paintings, inspired by the beauty of Venetian beads, filled with circles, ellipses, ovals, the artist’s paintings of these past years celebrate the grid, taking the intellectual, art critical dialogue and turning it on end in a rollicking array of sashaying grids layered on top of one another.  Owen’s works continue to have an optical tactility, though smooth of surface.  The physicality of paint is behind the surface as Owen builds a skin of many layers of paint “in verso.”
