SM: So you’ve been vis­it­ing other artist’s stu­dios for a while and con­tinue to do so. What do you achieve through these vis­its? What’s avail­able at another artists’ stu­dio that may not be avail­able at your own?

FA: Well it started in my own stu­dio a few years ago; I started a project where I was doing all these abstract paint­ings and I decided to pull out dif­fer­ent reoc­cur­ring sym­bols in the paint­ings and put them on their own sheets. I’d been sit­ting in my stu­dio with all this work that I’d been star­ing at for months and months, and I felt tired of look­ing at it. I didn’t par­tic­u­larly want to talk about it either. I had this big blank wall and I just started to put up all these sheets that I’d col­lected to just see how they looked. That kind of launched me into this whole idea of paint­ing my envi­ron­ment as I build it, in my stu­dio. So, then I took those sheets and ended up going into this whole series of paint­ings based on paint­ing those sheets which led me into paint­ing my stu­dio, because I moved away from the wall and looked at the whole envi­ron­ment. Then I really started to use that up a lot, where I felt I was kind of wring­ing it out where it was sat­u­rat­ing itself.

At this point I went to Ger­many to visit my father who’s also a painter. I vis­ited his stu­dio and took some pho­tos of his space, which grew into more paint­ings of his space. Then it became an inter­est­ing chal­lenge. Going into oth­ers spaces, it’s not always obvi­ous what I can bring into their world that is of my world. So I go in and see what I can find, then I bring it back to my stu­dio and work it out and trans­form it into some­thing of my own.'

FA: A good studio should have adequate light and at least one wall that you can stand far away from. It’s also important to me that space not be precious in any way (I hate having to worry about spilling on the floor) and that I have privacy. Any more is much appreciated gravy."

Richard Diebenkorn in 1982.

Main Street, running through the Ocean Park neighborhood of Santa Monica, is two blocks from the Pacific Ocean. The thoroughfare hums with cars, young families pushing strollers, aging hippies and fancy coffee machines.

Walk a bit, and you'll pass shops, restaurants and beach-y bungalows that can sell for $1 million or more. The Ocean Park you see in 2012 is very different from what it was in 1967, when Richard Diebenkorn began painting his Ocean Park series.

"This was a derelict area," says Kimberly Davis, who directs the L.A. Louver Gallery in nearby Venice Beach. Diebenkorn visited the L.A. Louver every week when he worked in Ocean Park. "There were a lot of artists living there," Davis says.

The reason there were so many artists was that rent was cheap — really cheap. They were living on the edge here. Ocean Park was literally at the edge of the country, but it was also on the edge of the edge of Los Angeles, and painters could afford to live here.

Diebenkorn's first Ocean Park studio, where he began making the big, gently colored, geometric canvases of his series, was on Ashland Avenue. Then he moved to 2448 Main St., where he built his studio. On the outside of the building hangs a plaque: R.D. Studio 1975 to 1988.
