- KurzbeschreibungAlthough known for his paintings and drawings, California artist Ed Ruscha has also attracted critical attention for his<br>photography. A new exhibition and accompanying catalogue, Ed Ruscha, Photographer, departs from earlier analyses<br>to explore how the artist&8217;s different disciplines&8212;painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography&8212;are guided and<br>shaped by a single vision.<br>Ruscha&8217;s relationship to photography is complex and ambivalent and his work is difficult to define. He has referred to<br>his photography as a &8220;hobby&8221; but from the outset it has drawn considerable critical interest. The small books of photographs<br>that Ruscha produced in the sixties and seventies earned him a reputation as an underground artist among his<br>peers, and have influenced subsequent generations of artists in Europe and North America. The photographs were<br>snapshot size, with an amateurish quality that intrigued his contemporaries. Neither purely documentary nor solely artistic,<br>their subject matter was stereotypical and banal, with motifs drawn from sites in Southern California or the western<br>United States. This, combined with their serial presentation, created a mythical road-movie or photo-novel effect with<br>Beat Generation innuendos and inspired interest among artists at a time when serial logic was prominent in Pop art and<br>Minimalism, and later in Conceptual art.
