John Baldessari: Crowds May 18 -June16, 2013 -
Over the past 18 years Baldessari has utilized the Mixografia printing technique to play with notions of texture, color and subject. Beginning in early 1993 Baldessari utilized the resources and technologies of the workshop, to re-define the relief print, first by ignoring the notion of volume altogether in his 2-dimentional deployment of a common table lamp rendered with its inherent shadow, and later by the embracing the variation in his picture plain by acknowledging a foreground-middle ground-background through the demarcation of relief with his work on Stonehenge (With Two Persons), 2005. Sailboat completed in 2008 emphasizes volume through paper sculpture. Baldessari’s A B C Art (Low Relief): A/Ant, Etc. (Keyboard), 2009 embraced the model of high and low relief generating depictions of food, body-parts, toys and sly popular culture references.
A selection of Baldessari’s 18 years of collaboration with Mixografia will also be on view at ForYourArt at 6020 Wilshire Blvd.
