edward ruscha

Ed Ruscha had consistently mingled his context of Los Angeles with the motifs of language and landscape to communicate a particular urban experience. Encompassing photography, drawing, painting and film, Ruscha’s work elevates the viewer out of the banality of urban life in order to recognized the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that assault us daily. His early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence Ruscha’s aesthetic and thematic approach.
