BRUCE RICHARDS BEFORE & AFTER, 2013-14 Oil on Canvas (diptych) Artist’s Frames 19 x 17 ½ inches each


Jack Rutberg Fine Arts / September 20 - November 29, 2014 / Los Angeles, California


Bruce Richards, now residing in New York, has long been associated with the Los Angeles contemporary art scene. His works can be both referential and ironic by contrasting art of the past and present, such as his play between a famous Magritte torso and Marina Abramovic's infamous performance where she carved a pentagram onto her belly. In another example he juxtaposes the prehistoric depiction of woman, The Venus of Willendorf, with a work by Jeff Koons. Bruce Richard's visual sleight-of-hand further informs the viewer through his use of titles. Puns and provocative word play provide witty clues to the artist’s frame of reference, sharing a certain sly kinship with another of L.A.’s Cool School icons, Ed Ruscha, counted among his many collectors.
