Frances Stark’s creative practice is deeply embedded and invested in language. Stark and Owens have been in sustained dialogue over the years as contemporary artists in Los Angeles. This special Artists on Artists offers insight into Stark’s own layered and porous practice, which ranges from carbon drawing, collage, and mixed-media paintings to video, performance, and Instagram photographs, revealing shared nodes of influence and inspiration between the two artists over the years.
