Label TextInterested in the never-ending manipulation of land, in Ocean Park #48, Richard Diebenkorn reflects that manipulation through building up and erasing materials on the painting's surface. The grid-like planes, manifesting flatness and depth at the same time, unify nature and the built environment, and suggest the landscape as seen from above. Diebenkorn softens the grid structure through a luminous treatment of color, evoking the Southern California light.
