Synopsis

Although known for his paintings and drawings, California artist Ed Ruscha has also attracted critical attention for his photography. A new exhibition and accompanying catalogue, "Ed Ruscha, Photographer", depart from earlier books to explore how the artist's different disciplines - painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography - are guided and shaped by a single vision. Ruscha's relationship to photography is complex and ambivalent, and the work is difficult to define. He has referred to his photography as a "hobby" but from the outset it has drawn considerable critical interest. The small books of photographs that Ruscha produced in the sixties and seventies earned him a reputation as an underground artist among his peers, and have influenced subsequent generations of artists in Europe and North America. The photographs were snapshot size, with an amateurish quality that intrigued his contemporaries. Neither purely documentary nor solely artistic, their subject matter was stereotypical and banal, with motifs drawn from sites in Southern California or the western United States.

This, combined with their serial presentation, created a mythical road-movie or photo-novel effect with Beat Generation innuendos and inspired interest among artists at a time when serial logic was prominent in Pop art and Minimalism, and later in Conceptual art. This volume, "Ed Ruscha, Photographer", is produced in conjunction with a traveling exhibition to be shown in Europe in 2006, organized by The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The exhibition photographs have been selected from the collections of the Whitney and the artist by independent curator Margit Rowell, who is also the author of the catalogue.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Margit Rowell is an art historian, critic and museum curator working mostly in Paris and New York. Working independently today, her earlier long-term affiliations were with the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York, where she organized exhibitions of classical modern and contemporary artists (among them Joan Miró, Constantin Brancusi, Sigmar Polke, and Luciano Fabro). In 2004, she organized a major exhibition of the drawings of Ed Ruscha for the Whitney Museum of American Art, which traveled to Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., and inspired the present study of Ed Ruscha’s photographs.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A well-produced book of Ruscha's photo work to coincide with his Whitney Museum exhibition. In the first forty pages Margit Rowell (who organised the exhibition) writes about Rusha's life and influences, an intriguing mixture of European commonplace and culture and heavy doses of American commercialism and print pop culture. I thought though that she found it hard going to explain some of his work within the context of fine art. Ruscha doesn't easily fit into a high culture setting and to my mind some of his endeavours are just plain mundane: the 'Babycakes' book for instance (I fancy Ed might well agree with me, too) but he is prepared to have a go at anything, painting, photography, publishing, films and clearly some great art has come out of all these different mediums.

The photo section of the book (114 pages and beautifully printed in 175dpi) runs from some of his first photo work in the late fifties, his European trip in 1961 to the last one, a color print presciently titled The End#4 from 1998. Annoyingly some of the images in this section could have been larger on the page, frequently the white space overpowers a photo that has plenty of detail. Included are eleven of my favorites, his aerial shots of LA parking lots, actually taken by photographer Art Alanis one Sunday in 1967, when the lots were empty.

Not having seen any of Rusha's famous books I was surprised to read in Rowell's essay that some of them have many blank pages. Ruscha's creative ideas only stretched to so many single images but a book has many pages, so why not just leave some of them blank and maintain the medium of a book. Apart from blank pages there was always the option of just changing the subject.

The medium is the message 6. September 2006
Von Robin Benson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A well-produced book of Ruscha's photo work to coincide with his Whitney Museum exhibition. In the first forty pages Margit Rowell (who organized the exhibition) writes about Rusha's life and influences: an intriguing mixture of European commonplace; culture and heavy doses of American commercialism and print pop culture. I thought, though that she found it hard going to explain some of his work within the context of fine art. Ruscha doesn't easily fit into a high culture setting and to my mind some of his endeavors are just plain mundane, the 'Babycakes' book for instance (I fancy Ed might well agree with me, too) but he is prepared to have a go at anything: painting, drawing, screen-printing, photography, publishing, films and clearly some great art has come out of all these different mediums.

The photo section of the book (114 pages and beautifully printed in 175 screen) runs from some of his first photo works in the late fifties, his European trip in 1961 to the last one, a color print presciently titled The End#4 from 1998. Annoyingly some of the images in this section could have been larger on the page, frequently the white space overpowers a photo that has plenty of detail. Included are eleven of my favorites, his aerial shots of LA parking lots, actually taken by photographer Art Alanis one Sunday in 1967, when the lots were empty.

Not having seen any of Rusha's famous self-published books I was surprised to read in Rowell's essay that some of them have many blank pages. Ruscha's creative ideas only stretched to so many single images but a book has many pages, so why not just leave some of them blank and maintain the medium of a book. Apart from blank pages there was always the option of just changing the subject. His 1964 'Various Small Fires' features fifteen snapshots of an incendiary nature (a Zippo lighter, a match, domestic gas range, a smoking cigarette, for example) in a forty-eight page book but there is a sixteenth shot of a glass of milk. Ed said, in 1965, "Milk seemed to make the book more interesting and gave it more cohesion". Go figure!

The back of the book lists the exhibits, a selected bibliography, chronology and finally the index. Overall an excellent overview of Rusha's photography and confirming to me, at least, that he is a bit of a creative enigma.

A different look at photography 11. Mai 2014
Von Rene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I would classify Ed Ruscha as principally a visual artist who works in different media. Of course, photography is an art form and the artist works in that medium as well as in paint, prints, film and drawing. This particular book emphasizes photography and that is the way I first came to hear of him. Photo critic A. D. Coleman wrote a brief summary of Ruscha's artist's book: 26 Gas Stations, and include a few pictures. Somehow this rather simple unpretentious work captivated me with the very ordinary black and white photos taken with a decent but also unpretentious camera. Maybe it was because these photos depicted visual icons of that time. In any case it was only many years later that I found out that Ruscha was active in so many other are as of art. I found this book extremely interesting, showing the familiar "landscapes and cityscapes" of our times, spaces and culture in unfamiliar ways.

Ruscha: Photographer 8. April 2011
Von Mr. Feller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great book to get if you are interested in Ed Ruscha's artwork. I also think that this is an excellent view on his photography and books that he self-published in the 60's. I am a big fan of his work and I really was impressed on how the book discusses (and shows images) of his books that he created. There isn't too much out there that's written on his artist-books as much as there is on his paintings. So, because of that, I really like and recommend this book.
