Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words

"Okla." (1968), is reproduced from Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words, a truly beautiful book, and the first to collect this body of work produced between 1966 and 1973. "The artist's words are sometimes literal, sometimes pun-like, sometimes cryptic, or even mystical," Glenn O'Brien writes. "When they confound they seem almost mantra-like—as a focal point for an entire field of meaning or suggestion. This effect is heightened by the carefully composed backgrounds the words rest on, or float above—backgrounds made of shadow (and by implication invisible light sources), by mists and clouds, and illuminated atmospheres. The shadows give a certain sense of solid presence and gravity, while the glowing atmospheres suggest auras—the radiance of objects charged with electromagnetic force."

Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words

Ed Ruscha's 1979 gunpowder and pastel drawing, "Hollywood" (1979), is reproduced from Ribbon Words, a new release this week. "I had, for some reason, a little box of gunpowder, and, I mean, I knew that this was made with charcoal and sulfur and salt, and so I jut thought, well, charcoal, I'm going to try this. And it was in little pellets, so I tried soaking it in water, and it dissolved the salts out, but it left a charcoal that had a kind of a warm tone to it, and it could be used in a way that was very easy to correct when you wanted to—if you made a mistake you could correct it much easier than you could if you used graphite. And so it became a convenient material that I liked. It had a good surface to it. So pictorially, I liked working with it."

Berenice Abbott: Paris Portraits 1925–1930

Now considered one of the most important photographers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Eugène Atget—photographed here in 1927—was rescued from obscurity by Berenice Abbott, who spent decades fighting to establish his reputation. "I asked Atget to come by and pose for me and he did," she said in 1979 to Hank O'Neal, co-editor and author of Berenice Abbott: Paris Portraits 1925-1930, the exquisite new monograph from Steidl. "I like the side view best; I think he knew I would and I didn't have to do anything with him. He just sat down this way and I took it. That was that. I didn't need to do anything. I had no idea he was so ill; I knew he was very old but I didn't expect him to die so soon. It turned out to be one of my popular portraits." Atget died only days after this photograph was made.
