Since 1973, John Baldessari (B. 1931, National City, CA) has used photography as a way to create conceptual compositions which explore the narrative potential between images and language, often rendering them with a clever sense of humor. He appropriates his imagery from a variety of sources, including advertising and film, transforming them into works that are ironic investigations into perception, meaning and interpretation. From his photo-text canvases and obscuring of faces, to his composite photo collages and installations, Baldessari has significantly contributed to the definition and evolution of Post-Modern art. The artist has won various awards over the course of his career including the Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award from the 53rd International Art Exhibition Venice Biennale in 2009 and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Americans for the Arts in 2005, among numerous others.
