Untitled, (Galleon Ship Silhouette), 1986. by Ed Ruscha. Acrylic on Canvas.
Artist Profile: Ed Ruscha
The soulful and gripping artwork of Ed Ruscha has been a part of my creative voice since I first saw his acrylic ship paintings. Ruscha’s work is diverse, stretching from design and illustrative influences to contemporary work.
The delicate, moody yet serious tones strike a chord within me. Its as if at first glance he illustrated something I have thought or felt before.
Fortunately, Rushca’s work and exhibits are available to browse through his website. A diverse collection is available on the Gagosian Gallery’s website. If you’re in the LA area, the Hammer museum is featuring solo exhibit on Rushca titled, On the Road. It’s times like these that provoke artists to appreciate the gifts of the living artists, the beautiful impact they have on us and society.
I am simple an enthusiast of his work. I would greatly appreciate more information or feedback. Please leave your impressions of Ruscha below or through email.
