Edward Ruscha - 'Metro Mattresses' @ Spreuth Magers, Berlin

Postby CAP » Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:17 pm

An odd little show by the grand old Californian master, featuring discarded mattresses around L.A. It sounds like the kind of thing he once would have documented with photographs in a little booklet but these days he turns the photos into pencil and wash drawings for some reason. They work. He still has a great eye for a telling subject. The mattresses could stand for all sorts of things about people in cities. They don't really suggest a particular pictorial medium.

Thanks to ArtForum's Travis Jeppesen for alerting me to this one. Spreuth, a bit of an underrated heavyweight among galleries.... ;)
