“In opposition to the psychological depths plumbed by the New York-based abstract expressionists, LA art relished and reflected the mass visual culture of southern California. ‘Pop’ may have been a conceptual import but its raw materials could be locally sourced. The streets were full of stuff that would end up in the paintings and photographs: cars, gas stations, billboards for the movie stars Hopper counted among his friends.” Geoff Dyer • Guardian
