For more than fifty years, Ed Ruscha has combined his interest in conceptual art and popular culture to make drawings, paintings and photographs that are often inextricably linked to the urban landscape of Southern California. Throughout the 1960s, Ruscha undertook several projects in which he documented seemingly banal architectural aspects of the greater Los Angeles area including gas stations, hotel swimming pools, and apartment buildings. Absent of human activity, these images display an objectivity and cool remove that is common in much of the artist's work. Parking Lots, taken in 1967, is one of the most iconic series and was published as a book titled Thirty-four Parking Lots.
