Acting Silly

Working on the metaphorical interaction between the shape of words and their linguistic meaning, 'Acting Silly' displays a series of letters, arranged in parallel diagonals painted in blueberry extract. This painting showcases two essential features of Ruscha’s work: the use of uncommon materials as pictorial matter and the mediation between word and image, the letters apparently following the playful suggestion of the work’s title.
