Catalogue Note

"They [Ocean Park's] make eye-music of quite another kind, even if the sudden sideways thrust of one form or another may occasionally echo the economical spear-thrust of one desert road as it darts away from another at an angle of 15 or 20 degrees. The pictures are much more about flatness, and about the ways in which the overall flatness can be spiced with forms that seem to overlap, or turn on hinges, or pull sideways back and forth across the surface..." - John Russell (Exh. Cat., London, Richard Diebenkorn, The Ocean Park Series: Recent Work, 1973, n.p.)
