Crossover Dreams’ is a subtle work which highlights Ruscha’s interest in the film industry. The crisp white lettering is brought to the fore by the spray-painted circular patches distributed across the surface. Together they create a haze of grey, punctuated only by the black centres of the spots, reminiscent of black and white movies. The text can also be seen as a reference to the film industry and the desire by actors and actresses to make the crossover from T.V. to the big screen, where the fame and money are much more significant. The typeface that Ruscha has used here is of his own design. Created in 1981, ‘Boy Scout Utility Modern’, is a simple font which is radically different from the style he used in works such as ‘Honk’.
