Eddie Ruscha - Cosmic Harmonics
Sapling presents Cosmic Harmonics, a solo exhibition by Eddie Ruscha curated by Cedric Bardawil.
For his first UK solo exhibition, Los Angeles based artist Eddie Ruscha has created spray paintings on paper and canvas board, which will hang alongside a video work and sound piece available on cassette. Guided by his desire to convey the spiritual and explore the eelationship between colour, sound and movement, Ruscha’s works are a harmonic dance between the mechanical and organic.
There is a rhythm and consistency to Ruscha’s work, which resonates with the formation of flower blooms, mythical worlds and contemporary pop culture. His art references Abstraction, Op Art and the California Light and Space Movement, whilst his sound develops the global-minded concept of Fourth World music, exploring new possibilities in sound by combining musical traditions with advanced electronic techniques.
