January 2015

Related to pop and conceptual art, Los Angeles-based artist Ed Ruscha likes to turn his works into wishes as if wishful painting could be. They deal with America, roads and landscapes as pages for sentences and cheerful mottos. So what’s best to move to a new year than to get momentum and optimism ? And Ruscha’s sky gives us all. As he once said in an interview, whereas his paintings look silent, they are full of hidden trumpets. Can’t you hear them ? Yes, you can. Come on, welcome to your next now and happy new year 2015.
