Lot Essay

“I went … several times, to his Ocean Park studio … And he had these transom windows. And you’d look out there and you’d see this little patch [of] blue and green, or the concrete abutments that would come, and you could … see what he was processing and essentializing … You have to have that sense of ambiguity … in order to … drive the painting into something other than something obvious and too predictable.”
— Wayne Thiebaud
