Lot Details

"Skate Decks: Set of 3" by John Baldessari. Dimensions each deck are H - 31.5inches W - 8 inches.

Since 1973 John Baldessari has been exploring photography as a way to create collage compositions that explore the relationships between images. He takes his imagery from many sources, including advertising and film. He also applies a painterly element to remind the viewer that the hand of the artist is not only in the ordering of the images but to hybridize mark making and photo making. John Baldessari has been termed "one of the most influential artists to emerge since the mid-1960s." From his photo text canvases to his composite photo collages and installations, Baldessari has contributed to the definition of postmodern art. In the early 1970s, he produced droll conceptual videotapes that are ironic investigations into perception, meaning and interpretation, rendered with deadpan, often absurdest humor.
