Quote of Note | Ed Ruscha


Ed Ruscha’s “Gilded, Marbled, and Foibled” (2011–12)

“…I was Artforum‘s layout designer for a few years beginning in 1964, after the magazine moved from San Francisco to LA. I would work a long weekend about once a month, pasting the magazine together with rubber cement and scissors and all that. That was the analog world I lived in. Even today I don’t use digital technology, particularly. I don’t do Twitter or any of that kind of stuff. I’m still stuck in the world of paint, so to speak. My liquid word paintings [1966-69], for instance, probably had a lot to do with my thinking about the still life, though I know they’ve also been discussed in terms of things like information theory. So I’m always looking back at history–but part of looking back is being constantly amazed by how things have developed and how we’ve gotten to where we are right now.”

-Ed Ruscha in Artforum. An exhibition of Ruscha’s bookish work is on view through January 12 at Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea.
