Both utopian and dystopian images took shape in the vision of artists working in Southern California in the 1960s and 70s. The sleek elegant even transcendent works of the "light and space" and "finish fetish" artists contrast with the gritty, tawdry materials and imagery of assemblage and California pop art.
