Ed Ruscha: Mysteries

Regular price Regular price $50,000

Ed Ruscha created Mysteries, a color lithograph, in collaboration with Vermillion Editions Limited in 2021. It is based on an oil-on-canvas painting of the same name from 1987.

Mysteries can be major (“Why do we exist?”) or minor (“Where the heck did I put my car keys?”). In Ruscha’s print, the word “mysteries” is superimposed over itself in multiple registers of scale and color atop a shadowy ground. Receding or advancing, the overlaid text creates a visual pulse that imbues the work with both a three-dimensional and a cinematic feel, as if marking a flash in time.
