Historical Context:
Stephen Duren attended the San Francisco Art Institute in the 1970s but skipped many of his studio classes in favor of working outside directly from nature. During these periods of plein air painting, he absorbed countless textures and patterns from the landscape, including that particular quality of light that is unique to California. This visual vocabulary became the foundation for his painting, as he moved from realism to abstraction.
