In many ways Ruscha's entire career has offered an artistic corollary to Kerouac's linguistic portrait of the American landscape, giving concrete visual form to the poetry of our vernacular roadside .. Both men revolutionized the transparent use of words to document and comment on the shifting character of the American cultural landscape" (Douglas Fogle zur Hammer Exhibition im Sommer 2011).
