Ed Ruscha’s newest body of work is a series of small-scale bleach on linen paintings: cryptic messages stained into muted backgrounds of grey, blue, and maroon linen. With a cover designed by the artist—showing the outline of a clorox bleach bottle—this publication highlights Ruscha’s ongoing fascination with the written word and the power of its isolation in his art.
