Charles Desmarais reviews Laura Owens: Ten Paintings at CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco, on view through July 23, 2016.

Desmarais writes: "Papering the walls with large hand-printed sheets, she has created a vast picture of layers of images in various stages of dissipation. Gaseous clouds of pixels and picture-parts unravel, carrying along image-objects from the artist’s past and present like celestial bodies in an expanding universe, or rending in giant tears and splits. It’s an all-over work of multiple print techniques, piled one atop another; troweled-on schmears of paint in pastel colors build out physically from trompe l’oeil spaces and structures, all coming together as an environment loosely bound by an irregular grid — faux posts and beams that mimic the supports of gallery walls and ceilings."
