Kopeikin Gallery is pleased to present Ed Ruscha’s Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass, by Amy Park.

Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass is Amy Park’s sequel to last year’s exhibition Every Building on The Sunset Strip, both book titles by Ed Ruscha. Rendered in watercolor as her aforementioned series, her paintings serve as both a meditation and further investigation into Ed Ruscha’s photographic imagery reconceived as bright and imaginative architectural paintings.

The photographs Ruscha published in his artist book are of generic uninhabited swimming pools, some with traces of water on the concrete deck or rippled water in the pool from a diver and the final image is of a mysterious broken glass. According to Amy Park’s exploration: “In reading about the book, I discovered that the pools are not from Los Angeles or even California, but are from Las Vegas. Most of Ruscha’s books were printed in black and white; “Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass” was printed in color.”
