Paul Ruscha's Full Moon Paperback – July 1, 2006
Top Customer Reviews
Created as a pictorial companion to Paul's Full Moon art exhibit at Pharmaka Gallery in Los Angeles, it catalogs many of the items in the show and introduces us to a selection of the artists (friends all) who contributed them.
It's also a colorful memoir from a member of the influential California art scene - an intelligent, multi-talented bon vivant. Paul loves living - and he especially loves ART and those inventive souls who interpret it. Since his favorite people collection expands as rapidly as his objects, it's lucky for us he keeps a good diary.
We get an informal biography of each chapter's subject, but the real star of these chronicles is Paul himself who describes his adventures and relationships and observations in a cheerful, candid style that feels like he's chatting with an old pal. His world is glamorous, demanding, complex and he enjoys it all. Paul is exactly the right person to be living his life. Happily, he believes in sharing.
This handsomely produced volume is a pleasure to read. My only disappointment is that it eventually came to an end.
The Art World.
And, of course, Oklahoma!
What a treat this book is.....
