"Edward Ruscha: Romance With Liquids, Paintings 1966-1969" erakusketa dela eta argitaratua.
Publicado con motivo de la exposición.

Edward Ruscha's work embraces a wide range of art movements. His versatility as an artist encompasses painting, drawing, photography, books, film, and the graphic arts. Both subtle and enigmatic, Ruscha's work favors a distinct, point-blank clarity associated with the Oklahoma Dust Bowl where he was born. In his introduction, noted art historian and critic, Yve-Alain Bois considers Ruscha's "liquid" paintings of 1966-1969 as among the artist's most influential and important explorations. Ruscha's extraordinary resourcefulness in combining words and images is a persistent factor in his continuing relevance to recent issues in contemporary art. Targeting the symbols of urban life with perfect precision, Ruscha transports the observer to a point of elevated vision, and permits us to see anew the volley of images and information that bombard spectators daily via mass media. Ruscha's keen vision and unpredictable humor, informed by the thoroughness and discipline rooted in his early career as a commercial artist, places him among the most consistently compelling postwar artists.
