Review:

At a kind of tutorial (20 minutes with Laura Owens) back in college a few years ago, I realised that
she was not a good teacher and not a good talker, and that she was not very bright either. Once
again the saying "BÍte comme un peintre" is wrong: I do not think she is a good painter either, and
on her new works the mixture of visual references speaks clearly of this shallowness. A bore now, I
would give her a few years still and follow her work to see if the saying becomes true.
