Uncovering the Cool; What Meghan Likes

In yesterday's post, artist Meghan Borah mentioned tons of cool stuff.  I needed to spend some QT doing a little research on her recommendations, motivations, rituals, etc.  Here's what I found:

LAURA OWENS, painter with a recent retrospective at the Whitney.

Ms. Owens loves painting but she approaches it with a rare combination of sincerity and irony. Distinguished by a sly, comedic beauty, her work has a playful, knowing, almost-Rococo lightness of being in which pleasure, humor, intelligence and a seductive sense of usually high color mingle freely
