Smoke, Tree, Shadow and Person - Pigment print on paper.
Baldessari is known for his use of appropriation, erasure, alteration, and montage to interrupt a given narrative and forge entirely new meanings from existing imagery. He dramatizes the ordinary, although beneath the apparent simplicity of his images lay varying connotations.
“Smoke, Tree, Shadow, and Person” examines the image, confronting the absurdity of the illogical narrative through the conscious removal of key visual elements. Much of Baldessari's work involves pointing, in which he tells the viewer not only what to look at but how to make selections and comparisons, often simply for the sake of doing so, as in the case of this artwork, which encourage a meditation in the viewer.
