John Baldessari, “Stonehenge (With Two Persons) Orange”
Mixografía® is pleased to announce an exhibition of new prints, Stonehenge (With Two Persons), 2005 by Southern California artist John Baldessari, with an opening reception for the artist May 13th, from 4 - 6:00 PM. The exhibition runs through June 30, 2006. This will be Baldessari‘s second major project with the workshop.
During a career spanning four decades, this renowned pioneer discovers his subject matter from a wide variety of appropriated material and found imagery taken from sources the world over. His unique strategies have, in the past, revealed a multiplicity of meaning via chance correspondences and overlapping visual fragments often used to create narrative, explore allegory, allusion, and open ended discourse.
Stonehenge (With Two Persons), 2005, includes six different editions printed in six variations of color & deep relief, and published by Mixografía®. The prints describe a unique place, stripped from the viewer with solid color, and providing a background for a found double portrait, faces obscured by additional circles of color.
