Ocean Park No. 29, 1970 Art Map Location #55

Richard Diebenkorn

Dallas Museum of Art

This work is part of Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park series, named for a section of Santa Monica, California. Here, Diebenkorn wanted to harmoniously unite the formal elements of color and line with a poetic evocation of his visual experience. Ocean Park No. 29, elegantly composed of horizontal, diagonal, and vertical planes of luminous color and lines, evokes the California light and landscape. The ordered atmosphere is lyrical and serene, but it carries a charge. Diebenkorn’s fluid working process – with erasures, corrections, and changes visible under a softly layered surface – creates an illusion of varying depth, what he called “tension beneath calm.”
