Ed Ruscha: New Paintings and Drawings
Karsten Schubert is pleased to announce the second solo show of Ed Ruscha at 85 Charlotte Street, which coincides with the Ruscha retrospective at Serpentine Gallery, London.
Throughout his involvement in Pop and Conceptual art, his preoccupation with language and meaning, and his production of offbeat photographic books – all closely concerned with Californian culture – Ruscha has become known as 'The LA artist'. His reputation has continued to grow internationally and he is now considered as one of the leading artists of his generation.
Exhibited at Karsten Schubert are a number of white-on-white paintings of a kind not previously shown; the colours of the new paintings are more sombre and the texts embedded with them again become the central preoccupation for the artist.
