Edward Ruscha's art is arresting and interesting. It has an air of humour about it too. What I wouldn't do for a print of the COLD BEER BEAUTIFUL GIRLS poster in my apartment. Sophia Coppola has one after she took it home from the Somewhere set. With Sophia's taste it's probably impossible to find by now. I also feel the need for a print of a pineapple for my wall. Strange but I think it might work.  

'I'm not just looking for pretty flowers to paint. There is a certain flower of decadence that inspires me. And when I drive into some sort of industrial wasteland in America, with the themeparks and warehouses, there's something saying something to me. It's a mixture of those things that gives me some sense of reality and moves me along as an artist.' - Edward Ruscha
