Ed Ruscha and the Great American West

£45.95  

The renowned artist Ed Ruscha was born in Nebraska, grew up in Oklahoma, and has lived and worked in Southern California since the late 1950s. Beginning in 1956, road trips across the American Southwest furnished a conceptual trove of themes and motifs that he mined throughout his career.

The everyday landscapes of the West, especially as experienced from the automobile - gas stations, billboards, building facades, parking lots, and long stretches of roadway - are the primary motifs of his often deadpan and instantly recognizable paintings and works on paper, as well as his influential artist books such as Twentysix Gasoline Stations and All the Buildings on the Sunset Strip.

His iconic word images - declaring Adios, Rodeo, Wheels over Indian Trails, and Honey...Twisted through More Damn Traffic to Get Here - further underscore a contemporary Western sensibility.
