Baldessari - Parse033

For this 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, John Baldessari references the way information and its construction is generally handled in this original artist’s book.
