Ed Ruscha @ the Gagosian in Rome

In his most recent paintings, Ed Ruscha continues to meditate on the melancholy of Psycho Spaghetti Westerns in complex pictures that conflate his signature elements with the visual devices, perspectival techniques, and refined atmospheres of Old Master paintings to depict the romantic road trip of youth reduced to roadside dystopia. Ed Ruscha "Paintings"will be on view until January 17th at the Gagosian in Rome, Via Francesco Crispi 16
