Ed Ruscha explains his love of Gas Stations

The book went on to be widely regarded as the first instance ever of the artist book. Yet, as he makes clear in this video interview, the work was no prank. There's a hint of certain political sympathies though, when he says the land where the gas stations stand "used to belong to Navajo and Apache Indians," but became the property of "the white man," and so was marked out with this new kind of building. He also talks through his later art books, which focused on LA's swimming pools and parking lots. Ruscha explains that this equally deadpan subject matter came to him when he took the opportunity to ride in a helicopter over LA.

Published in April [1] on his own imprint National Excelsior Press, [2] it is often considered to be the first modern artist's book, [3] and has become famous as a precursor and a major influence on the emerging artist's book culture, especially in America. From the first service station, 'Bob's Service' in Los Angeles where Ruscha lived, the book follows a journey back to Oklahoma City where he had grown up and where his mother still lived. The last image is of a Fina gasoline station in Groom , Texas , which Ruscha has suggested should be seen as the beginning of the return journey, 'like a coda'. Originally printed in a numbered edition of , a second edition of was published in and a third of in It has been suggested that these reprints were a deliberate attempt to flood the market in order to maintain the book's status as a cheap, mass-produced commodity. Ruscha's books combined the literalness of early California pop art with a flat-footed photographic aesthetic informed by minimalist notions of repetitive sequence and seriality Thirty years later, with a quarter of a century of mainstream artworld activity between, the aspect of shock-effect and humor has diminished somewhat.

Twentysix Gasoline Stations by Ruscha

Twentysix Gasoline Stations , a modest publication consisting of black and white photographs with captions, is an iconic artist book. Clive Phillpot, writer, curator and former Director of the Library at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, observes that the photographs are not reproduced in a linear sequence, with five photographs out of order. Each opening of the book reveals one or two photographs in varying but repeated layouts, with the photographs set in relatively large areas of white space. The front cover has the title printed in red as three separate lines, the stark brightness of the design muted by the wrap around protective cover.
