Ed Ruscha: Los Angeles Apartments

Contributions by Christian Muller.

"Atlantic Boulevard," 1965, is reproduced from 'Ed Ruscha: Los Angeles Apartments.'This is the catalogue for Ed Ruscha's exhibition Los Angeles Apartments, held at the Kunstmuseum Basel in 2013. In 1965, Ed Ruscha published Some Los Angeles Apartments, the third of his ongoing series of photographic books, and completed a group of ten related drawings that depict examples of the ubiquitous Southern California apartment building. The exhibition showed the preparatory studies for these drawings which were recently acquired by the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Kunstmuseum Basel. They are based directly on the photographs Ruscha made of the apartment buildings. Also included are photographs from Ruscha's Gasoline Stations series of 1962, one of which served as a model for the painting of Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas, of 1963. By immediately juxtaposing preparatory studies, drawings and photographs, Ruscha's working method is clearly highlighted and the significance of photography for his passage between abstraction and realism made evident.

Ed Ruscha: Los Angeles Apartments

Ed Ruscha: Los Angeles Apartments

"The graphite drawings are abstract and realistic at once, spawned, as they are, by the realm of the imagination," Christian Müller writes in Steidl's gorgeous, clothbound Ed Ruscha: Los Angeles Apartments. "They are dematerialized dream images that keep eluding viewers although they are based on photography. Ultimately they are unfathomable, consisting only of light and shadow, existing only on the surface of the paper. Ruscha's Los Angeles Apartments become signs of a residential culture that breeds interchangeability and arbitrariness by flaunting the pretense of individuality and promises it cannot keep. They simply are what they are: façades. 'Los Angeles to me is like a series of storefront planes that are all vertical from the street, and there's almost like nothing behind the façades. It's all façades here—that's what intrigues me about the whole city of Los Angeles—the façade-ness of the whole thing." Featured image is "Thayer Avenue" (1965). continue to blog
