It is hard to characterize John Baldessari's (American, 1931-2020) varied practice—which included photomontage, prints, paintings, film, performance, and installation—except through his approach of good-humored irreverence. Baldessari was commonly associated with Conceptual or Minimalist art, though he called this characterization “a little bit boring.” His two-dimensional works often incorporate found images, composed in layers or presented as distinct pieces with an element of surprise, like a brightly colored geometric shape in the place of a face or a starkly printed sardonic caption.
