Raymond Pettibon, No Title (I Thought California), 1989
The sumi-e economy of it, the insight & soulcapture, the hunched hurry, the spotlight wash on the back, the tense lift of the elbow, and those words, plunging everything — as in so much of the artist’s work — into some black plot whose conclusion everybody knows.
