Description

Iconic Los Angeles-based Pop artist Ed Ruscha produced this pair of prints in honor of his 2011 exhibition “Ed Ruscha: Road Tested,” held at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Fort Worth, Texas. Each depicting a shiny, old-fashioned gear shift, “Ford” and “Chevy” tie into one of the most prevalent themes in Ruscha’s body of work: the American road, often explored through paintings inspired by road signs, gas stations, maps, and mechanics.

About Ed Ruscha

View Profile »

Edward (Ed) Ruscha IV (American, b. 1937) is associated with the Pop art movement. Encompassing painting, drawing, and photography, Ruscha's works hold a mirror up to the banality of urban life and gives order to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confronts us daily. Ruscha's early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence his aesthetic and thematic approach. He regularly combines the cityscape of his adopted hometown of Los Angeles with a typically American vernacular to communicate a particular urban experience.
