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, departs from ear­lier ana­ly­ses 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 his 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.
