Ed Ruscha 1974

I LOVE Ed Ruscha's work during 1974. He used natural liquids and pigments to apply text to lux fabrics. A permanent stain is just what makes the fabric on furniture or fashion less desirable, but in this case it is the stain that transforms the fabric into art. See more at the incredible Ed Ruscha archive and read my essay on his photography and books here.
