LAMA California Artists

Just In: John Baldessari

March 28, 2018

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Over the course of his long career, John Baldessari has expressed a deep infatuation with the relationship between the semantics of the written word and those inherent to visual language. His work often addresses the ways in which various visual and verbal codes both enable and destabilize modes of communication and meaning-making. “Words and imagery are both magical conveyors of meaning,” he once explained. In the upcoming June 10, 2018 auction, we are delighted to have the opportunity to include the complete set of five lithographs, which Baldessari created in response to Laurence Sterne’s classical, eighteenth-century masterwork, “The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman.”
