Laurence Owen

Laurence Owen (b. 1984, Gloucester, UK) previously studied at Falmouth College of Art. Through paintings and ceramics Owen sets up a language reminiscent of artefact and relic. He employs the recognisable with connotative values that we associate with object and time. By considering Folklore, Paganism and early Mythology he investigates how these specific belief systems are connected to contemporary consumerist culture through ideas of ritual and worship. Owen questions how meaning can be brought to or embedded into materiality, and how Art as a relational objects can stimulate value and belief.
