John Baldessari

Parse

For this limited edition book, John Baldessari has developed a sequence of incomplete, cut-out, and mysterious images, which leads to a construction of meanings and stories.

We make our way through pages of fragments from B-movie stills – grouped by the artist into compelling layouts – to a second chapter with ‘complete’ pictures.

Juggling with themes of composition, omission, and the creation of rhythm, using fragmented visual information, Baldessari references the way information and its construction is generally handled in this original artist’s book.

Baldessari often integrates images and text from advertising and movies into his works and over the years has built-up a large archive of film stills, publicity, and press photographs. This image material is then contrasted, cropped, and processed in numerous variations and visual realizations.
