Raymond Pettibon

"In No Title (But the sand...), a wave of gigantic proportions forms a high, foamy peak against a flat, dark-blue ocean with no land visible on the horizon.
Multicolored surfboards without their riders are caught in free-fall down the side of the wave.
A text is inscribed at the bottom-left: "But the sand or clay to which by one or the other process we are reducible are turned to glass and foam."
No Title (But the sand...) presents one of Pettibon's largest works on paper with this subject matter."
