ED RUSCHA...it hit me hard to see these words today.
so simple, and yet a relief flooded me to read it....
Ed Ruscha, That Was Then This Is Now #1, 1989
Ed Ruscha, Lion in Oil, 2002
do you see it? (its a palindrome.) i loved that moment of realization when i realized what i was seeing. i got to see this piece at LACMA's Magritte and Contemporary Art: The Treachery of Images which was an inspiring show. it also featured one of my all time favorite images ever:
John Baldessari Wrong, 1966-68
Why not break the rules?!
