Clocks presents the complete collection of Laura Owens’ clock paintings in scaled down reproductions: the front and back of each canvas are shown on the front and reverse of each page, transforming the unique “don’t touch” quality of the canvases into a tactile browse. Each work is outfitted with moving clock hands—raised lines that move and cast their shadows as they go. There are numbers to be found, but they are tumbling across another painting’s surface, or used as placeholders for eyes on a sketched-out face.
