Distant Black Action continues Wayne's experiments with combinations of painted and printed surfaces established with the four groups of litho/paint collages begun the previous year (Ankerite, Scannerite, Scanador. and Empyrealite) (Source: The Art of Everything, Robert Conway, 2007)

In this work, and its companion piece, "Distant White Action", Wayne explores the forces of outer space and the origins of the universe, a principal focus of her attention from 1965 onward.
