To our minds, it perfectly captured how attuned Diebenkorn was to art history as he forged his own distinctive vocabulary as a painter. And Diebenkorn almost comically includes not just an orange, but an orange peel , as well as a brown, rotten lemon both elements he liked so much that he would paint them again. After several months went by without an answer, Andrea Liguori, the managing director of the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, informed us that the owner, Barbara Foster, had passed away at the age of ninety-seven.
We have since learned that Mrs. In the fall of , she took a painting class with none other than Richard Diebenkorn, who, after both studying and teaching at the school in the late s, had just re-joined the faculty that semester. The stylish town has its own answers in accounts of former times when citizens peered from curtains as their neighbours were arrested: This probing of ideas of what constitutes normality and expectation extends to all the poetry of Archival Footwork.
Fisher is well acquainted with the record of opposing visions of Australia in Colonial times, and of their persistence even into more recent times.

Odd that we never really noticed how our trees look straggling up a hillside, ragged against the sky. Until he showed us.

Still Life – Barbara Conte-Gaugel
At times the mood of such poetry is deceptively equable. This strikes me as quite deliberate. By contrast, a cucumber is defined almost negatively: This last, with its contrast between grim surrounds and the milieu of Wildean privilege and wit, also finds echoes in poems about class and privilege closer at hand: She speculates that this due to the influx of cleaners and housekeepers.
Oblique references to personal pastimes like reading and solving crosswords give the clue to a mind that revels in the contrariness of mundane activities. Fisher dramatises the female dove that remains in the Ark when the male bird fails to return. That sense of the mot juste extends to impatience with imprecision.
Aware of ambiguities inherent in language, her poetry seeks out the marginally recorded, the fact behind the legend, the un-famous who appear beside the celebrated and famous in photographs. This is a quintessentially democratic aspect of her style. The first section speaks of delight in the tangible, visual and edible world, including the associations of names we bestow on objects—such as pears in the poem of the same name: Several poems take paintings as triggers for other conclusions than those intended by the artists.
Out there canvas cities flap in a dry wind, water queues wait in the dust. Does the poet have to say more?

The base is slightly colored to get a warm ochre tone in light gray which will form the basis for drawing. Then, the subject is drawn with precision to the pencil. Then applied a thin layer of liquid paint. In this step, she already has the design, colors and shadows.
