Ed Ruscha (b. December 16, 1937) in Omaha, Nebraska.
One of the most important postwar artists, Ed Ruscha came into prominence during the 1960s pop art movement. First recognized for his associations to graphic design and commercial art, Ruscha became admired for his meditations on word and image. Working in a variety of media and taking the environment of Los Angeles as a guide, Ruscha creates candid, comic presentations of familiar ideas and locations that continue to impact contemporary art.
Like his friend Willem de Kooning, Kline used abstraction to commemorate specific people, places, or events. Dynamic line and powerful brushstrokes loaded with paint reduce his compositions to a few large forms. Both the white and black areas seem to project from the work with equal force; this dramatic surface tension releases and yet controls the energy of his process. Kline’s dialogue of black and white in Siskind evokes the abstract photographs of Aaron Siskind, his close friend, to whom this work is dedicated.
