Compiling four-hundred-plus unique works of art, this volume traces the shifts and developments in conceptual artist John Baldessariâs work from 1975-86. It covers his photo-based works such as the âStrobe,â âWord Chain,â and âPathetic Fallacyâ series from 1975; the âViolent Spaceâ and the seminal âConcerning Diachronic/Synchronic Time: Above, On, Under (With Mermaid),â from 1976; and the âBlasted Allegoriesâ series from 1977-78, which drew heavily from the artistâs vast collection of photo stills taken from commercial television.
In the 1980s, Baldessariâs art took a different direction, beginning with the expansive âFugitive Essaysâ triptychs from 1980 and leading to 1982âs photographic interpretations of Grimmâs Fairy Tales. Building on these themes, Baldessari began producing a body of work that was inspired in part by dreams, psychology, film, and popular culture. Ensuing works were more formal, elaborate, and large-scale. From 1984 to 1986 Baldessari created a number of works that employed his soon-to-be-signature colored discs painted over peopleâs faces in the photos.
An introductory essay will provide a close reading of selected works and a historical context for understanding Baldessariâs art from this period. A detailed chronology and exhibition history and bibliography are also included. This is the second of a projected four-volume catalogue raisonnÃ©.
