John Baldessari is a conceptual artist. Personally i am not the greatest fan of his work, but because of his approach to the the work of Sol LeWitt i have this one publication that is very special and of course typical Baldessari and available at www.ftn-books.com
Initially a painter, Baldessari began to incorporate texts and photography into his canvases in the mid-1960s. In 1970 he began working in printmaking, film, video, installation, sculpture and photography. He has created thousands of works that demonstrate—and, in many cases, combine—the narrative potential of images and the associative power of language within the boundaries of the work of art. His art has been featured in more than 200 solo exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe. His work influenced Cindy Sherman, David Salle, Annette Lemieux, and Barbara Kruger among others.
