Los Angeles–based artist Laura Owens’s practice blurs representation and abstraction, borrowing extensively from a wide variety of art historical sources—from Chinese landscape painting and the work of European painters like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, to Color Field painting and Pop Art. Owens combines the grid and the gesture, balancing stenciled or screenprinted images with hand-painted marks. For the 2016–17 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Owens has produced eleven unique designs. Each ticket features a pattern of lemons drawn in a seventies illustration–style and printed in different color variations.
