Ed Ruscha Books & Co. Gagosian Gallery was a fantastic success. I'm very happy to be part of it. The opening on Tuesday, March 5th was widely attended. It was great to meet so many different artists who were influenced by Ruscha. I have to thank Gagosian gallery for putting on the show and for the reception after the opening. Thanks to Jeff Brouws, Wendy Burton, and Hermann Zschiegner for making Various Small Books and Books & Co. possible. Much respect to the artist Ed Ruscha. His publication, Twentysix Gasoline Stations, provided a language of minimalist sequence and seriality which has influenced the work of many contemporary artists, as well as my book, ten convenient stores.
