Fruits & Nuts, 2011

Laura Owens

"Fruits and Nuts is a handmade board book by Laura Owens that takes its title from a play on the joke about California being full of fruits and nuts. The pages of each book are hand-glued with actual newsprint from different Californian 1960s newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Berkeley Barb, and Los Angeles Times, and then silkscreened, making each book truly unique. Inside pages are screenprinted with an illustrated alphabet of fruits and nuts. Covers are hand-painted by the artist, and vary in color. Each copy is entirely handmade and features different original newsprint on each page."

Laura Owens, Peter Doig, and Chris Ofili

"Cave Painting explores the notion that painting has become further and further removed from contemporary art. Artists Peter Doig, Laura Owens and Chris Ofili defend this idea by claiming that a painting’s strength is that it can survive on its own. These painters are more interested in restoring belief rather then indulging in cynicism or irony. They explain their process within a philosophical context that rejects easy answers, immediacy or pretentiousness."

Published in conjunction with the exhibition Cave Painting at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, February - March 2002.
