“Cotton Puffs, Q-tips, Smoke and Mirrors: The Drawings of Ed Ruscha showcases Ed Ruscha’s singular vision and his wide range of highly personal mediums and techniques — from pastels and gunpowder to blood, coffee, and tobacco stains. Ed Ruscha’s work includes paintings, photographs, prints, books, and films, but his unique works on paper are perhaps his richest vein. Through his interpretations of cultural icons and vernacular subjects such as the Hollywood sign, trademarks, and gas stations, as well as his renderings of words and phrases in countless stylistic variations, Ruscha proposes a modern landscape based on keen observation and wry humor”
